previously got some great advice to help start me off on our Santa Fe trip
Flying into ABQ around noon Tuesday may 15, and then back home Saturday 5/19 2 pm
Two of us (age 50) for anniversary, active outdoorsy and hoping for a few good half day strenuous hikes, good meals, maybe a museum or two. We realize hiking may be limited by dry season restrictions due to fire risk, though. Mostly intend to spend the evenings in Santa Fe, maybe one half day as well
Do you recommend all four nights in Santa Fe, and take day trips each day? Or 3 nights in Santa Fe and 1 night elsewhere (Taos?)? Or another plan?
We currently have three nights reserved at Inn of Governors, based on TA reviews and advice, and were preliminarily thinking going to Taos early Friday spend the day there and then drive back right to ABQ on Saturday to fly out. Open to other suggestions
Plan on doing Tent Rocks and Bandelier as two definites, unless others have opinions for better places to go to hike. We do a lot of hiking across the US but not in southwest, so probably would lean towards more unique hikes for the area
We are also hoping for one special night out for dinner, seems like there are a few options there like Radish and Rye and Geronimo
Other than the pretty drive, what else is unique about Taos? Perhaps the bridge over the gorge? Also considering Los Alamos instead of Taos.
Trying to make the most of our time there, wish it were longer!
