We packed so many unforgettable experiences in our New Mexico road trip, it is hard to pick a favorite. Driving up through the red and multicolored rock formations from Española to Abiquiu and further on to Ghost Ranch, Georgia O’Keefe‘s adopted home was one of the most scenic drives we took, and we could easily understand why the painter chose to move out to what appears to be such a sparse, rough region.
We thought two weeks in New Mexico might be too much, but it turns out we only added to our itinerary, and on our next trip we want to visit several more national parks, take a rafting trip down the Rio Grande, hike in the Enchanted Circle north of Taos and slow down to spend more time in the towns we already visited. In total, we drove over 2,600 miles in New Mexico alone (over 4,100 miles in total all the way to Chicago) – we’ll be sharing more stories about our road trip here shortly.
