    A good day trip from Santa Fe is The Enchanted Circle (don't miss the Viet Nam memorial.) You'll hit Eagle Lake around lunch time so take along a picnic---the Safeway(? maybe some other chain) in Taos can fix you up with sandwiches if you're not of a mind to "roll your own."
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.

    Margaritas at the Adobe Bar.....dinner at Elmeze.....with the current weather the clouds are great....you can't miss photographically in Taos.
    Great coffee all over the place, & last minute food stuff at Cid's grocery.

    You are going to be in two very special places, Santa Fe and Taos. Shoot close to those places, don't spend your time trying to drive to a different place. It's a big state and spread out, the idea that you should pack up and leave northern NM to go hunting for spots in southern NM is a time waster. Unless you like driving up and down the state on Highway 25 for 6 or 8 hours. I lived in Las Cruces, NM for 10 years, trust me, you are going to be in great spots to shoot people, architecture, landscape, anything you want. This part of NM has what brought some of the early great photographers and artists to the area, and Santa Fe still sells more art than any other city in American after NYC and LA.

    Garrett, That is great advice. Me, I'm heading for Santa Fe tomorrow on the High Road. I hope things have worked out for Mark S, the OP. Going to burn through some 5x7 holders!

    I met up with Mark and Ed Richards in Albuquerque yesterday (Ed in town from New Orleans). We had lunch and went over to the Sugimoto exhibit. Had a great time.
    Thanks,
    Kirk

    Frank is right. Bandelier National Monument is usually uncrowded and a personal sized cliff dwelling site. You climb ladders and explore as much as you like.
    Like steam trains? The Cumbres & Toltec is located in Chama.
    Have fun!

    Although I also check out the local "Zorba's," I prefer venturing into the unknown and unexpected:

    As others have said, you can't go wrong. The adobe churches on the Old Taos Road (San José de Gracia in Las Trampas and San Francisco de Asis at Ranchos de Taos) are fabulous -- the latter has been photographed by Strand and Adams and virtually everyone else who has been to the area and is still worth doing. I've made three trips there and can't wait for the fourth to add to my portfolio. Also nearby is Abiquiu and Ghost Ranch. Chimayo is very interesting, but not photographer friendly. Georgia O'Keeffe's "White Place" near Abiquiu is just jaw dropping and one could easily spend days there -- and the Abiquiu Inn nearby has beautiful rooms and a great restaurant (No, I'm not in their employ!). Anywhere you go, you will find great stuff for image-making. Cheers, Dave

    Isn't it impossible to have "many" best attractions?
