  • Isotopes Baseball

    Albuquerque Sports & Outdoors

    I'm a big soccer/baseball fan and both of these sports may take some patience to fully appreciate all the intricacies. What better way to enjoy the great american passtime in optimal weather with a wonderful backdrop of the sandia mountains in a brand new stadium. The team is decent too so theres a good chance you'll see some top pros come through...

    Albuquerque Sports & Outdoors

    Hiking the Albuquerque Municipal Open Space areas is great whether you're hardcore outdoorsy--there are some really hilly trails--or just want to find a nice rock from which to watch the sunset. It's hard to get lost because from every high point you can look west and see the city, but if you face east, all you see is mountain and...

    Albuquerque Sports & Outdoors

    Ski Santa Fe is a nice hometown ski area, not impressive if you're used to the Alps, but fun for locals and daytrips. Because we're so far south, it's often warm enough to shed your outer layers--I love the days I can snowboard in a t-shirt--but the sun is fierce, so make sure you wear sunscreen. There's enough variety to keep you entertained for a...

  • Hiking

    The area north of Taos , the Enchanted Circle around Wheeler Peak, reminded us a lot of Colorado. It is very close to that State, so this makes sense. We enjoyed hiking there very much, and want to go back to hike all the way up the mountain. At the higher elevations, it is not as hot as in the rest of New Mexico, so hiking is a little easier once...

  • Taos Ski Valley (in summer)

    I could not resist sitting on that ski lift, wishing it to be winter time and having skies on...But, after looking at the Taos slopes we decided Taos ski valley was a much better summer location to visit that winter. There were not that many slopes, and I feel like I am getting a little too old to ski down something that narrow and almost...

  • White Water Rafting on Rio Grande River

    We found a brochure for NewWave rafting on the Rio Grande River in a hotel in Albuquerque ( I have to look up how to spell this every time I type it!! lol! I wonder how many times I spelled it wrong on this page)So, we called them up and got a reservation for the same day ( in the middle of the week). I was a little nervous about it, and had...

    our family likes Angle fire and Red River. Red River is smaller and cheaper. Angle fire has more choices. We usually buy 1 day passes and go to both. Red River to learn and then Angel fire to test your skills. It is nice to have variety. And you want to keep the options open because of the crowds. sometimes angel fire just gets too crowded and it...

  • Rio Grande Rapids

    About midway between Taos and Santa Fe, the highway meets the Rio Grande River gorge at a little place called Pilar. There is an interpretive center there with interesting facts on the river, and it is where I took the page-opening photo of the river from their balcony above the highway. The river cuts some steep gorges through the rocks just south...
