Yesterday I was suffering from altitude sickness, climbing the last 600 feet on the Slot Canyon trail at Kasha-Katuwe and loving it. Today driving the Enchanted Circle, I would have gone back in time 24 hours being close to throwing up, head spinning, and having a difficult time catching my breath compared to this drive. Maybe it is better during... 更多
The variety of land form and shape easily informs the beholder of the inspiration for legion's of artists. The play of light, color, texture, and warmth constantly change during the drive.
Snow on the ground but not on the roads, bright blue skies, crisp temps made this drive awesome. We took a side road on the way to Red River to see the Rio Grande Gorge and we are glad we did. We stopped at Red River and rode the chair lift up to 10,300 feet as we were not prepared... 更多
Beautiful views, fishing, hunting and 4 wheeling. Locals are warm and friendly. Bring fishing pole and hiking shoes, the area is and has wonderful fishing. Great cabin lodging or camping. For singles, couples, or families!
My husband and I travel this circle about twice a month doing insurance work ...and better than that, we live on it between Taos and Angel Fire. We have the best job ever!!!! You have to take it easy after a snow, but the roads are quickly cleared by New Mexico's road department and the scenery is just so beautiful.... 更多

We had to make a u-turn to explore and photograph an old deserted homestead with outbuildings. This... 更多
If you are visiting Taos you must do the Enchanted Circle Drive. The scenery along the 90 mile route never gets boring. We did not do a lot of stops in the towns and the trip took us 3+ hours as we detoured to Ski Valley. Also, do not miss the Vietnam Memorial just outside of Angel Fire. It is... 更多

Please stop and visit the Vietnam Veterans Memorial at Angel Fire and be so kind as to leave a donation. Then you are back in Taos. Take your time, its a... 更多
My Lonely Planet book recommended this drive and I am very glad I took it. Starting out from Taos, you drive through several small towns and excellent scenery through the mountains. Especially enjoyed Red River with its cool downtown area and funky shops. Saw bighorn sheep on the drive and going in the fall made for beautiful colors with the... 更多
