The mountain range is home to many 14,000 ft. high mountain peaks, small towns, Indian pueblo ruins and hot springs.
To really see the sights, you must plan to spend 2-3 days along the way. Then you can relax, view the gorgeous surroundings and appreciate nature’s beauty.
Then you can send me that thank you postcard! Oh baby, you’re gonna love it!
