We just got back from Angel Fire and we loved it. Let me first say the Angel Fire RV Resort was wonderful, it was a great place to stay. We would highly recommend it.
Angel Fire is a sleepy little town in Northern NM with a few nice shops and some good restaurants, we used this as our base location then traveled the enchanted circle for day trips. Santa Fe is a couple of hours away and could be done in one or two days.
Traveling up to Angel Fire we went from DFW through Lubbock to see family and then up to Santa Rosa and cut up and caught I-25 to N of Springer and then turned west on 58. (We were told not to go through Mora in a RV.) We stayed 9 days in Angel Fire and wished we had more time there.
Then went to the NRA Whittington Center near Raton which if you’re a NRA member and/or believe in the 2nd amendment is fantastic. 30,000 acres of well-maintained majestic terrain and some of the nicest people we have ever met.
Now back to the topic of this thread, the trip home through Dalhart which is under construction until late 2017 and it is a mess. I called the TXDOT office in Dalhart and they suggested we take a route that takes you around Dalhart to the west.
Coming in from the north on 87 just before you get to Dalhart turn west on FM1727, go to FM 3489 turn south, go to FM 694 turn east, go to us 54 and come back into town, you’ll end up on 7th street and take it back over to 87.
This is a PIA and the Farm roads kinda suck but it beat adding 100 miles to the trip going around. Overall Dalhart really wasn’t an issue we just had to pay attention and do a little diligence.
Hope this helps
