Default Tell me about New Mexico

Me and some friends are planning a fishing and camping trip to NM, prob in June. We're from Nebraska, and have done trips in South Dakota, Iowa, Missouri, Arkansas, Colorado and of course Nebraska.

Looking towards northern New Mexico, near the Colorado border. Is anyone here familiar with this area? Thanks in advance

We have lived here since 1992. We have a home in the city and a place in the country. Great place to ride your atv, fish, white water rafting, camping, and great local eats.

Check out the Valle Vidal. It's close to the border and extremely awesome. If you're looking for a mixture of city and wilderness, there's a lot of backcountry camping north of Taos, which is a good place to drink beer and eat pizza.

Some areas are not so friendly. Lots of drugs around Espanola. I love the Truchas Wilderness Area.

Our place is in Rociada. Great golf course and vistas, trail heads to the Pecos Wilderness are close by.

Brain fart time. I enter the Pecos Wilderness near Truchas. Been up Turchas Peak. But that was when I was much younger, and before heart disease.

It's big.

The roads suck.

Drivers suck.

It's big.

Incredibly boring in spots.

Indescribably beautiful in spots.

It's windy.

It's big.

It's cold in winter.

Nice place.

Check points are only at the borders near Mexico. Only like semis with cargo stop at the ones from other states.

what part of northern new mexico are you going to. There are so many places to go to. It is easy to get far enough way from people with lots of choices. If you want to email me so questions i will do my best to answer them. but hurry up because i am leaving on an extended trip lasting three weeks if i have my way.

If you travel further west in NM, Navajo Reservoir has some good fishing & camping. If you like history at all, Aztec Ruins National Monument is interesting, Chaco Canyon has Anasazi Ruins, (Pueblo people).
