New Mexico Please
West or South not sure, probably both, doing NewMexico and looking for advice.
Would like to take my kids to some cliff dwelling, found three that sound interesting: Walnut Canyon National Monument, Puye Cliff Dwellings(on a reservation) and Walnut Canyon National Monument(Arizona).
Has anyone been too any of these and what do you think?
Is there anything ells that we shouldn’t miss and why?
Our trip leaves Cal. October 4th, we meet my sister and kids in Scottsdale at Butterfly World the 5th and that evening will stay at Cogwell Ostrich Farm. Get down to Carlsbad Caverns on the 6th, hope the bats are still around. Heard something about some white sand dunes in that area as well, have to see about time. The 9th we check into Albuquerque Balloon Festival and do a balloon ride on the 12th check out on the 13th and start heading home(slowly). I think the cliff dwellings would be fun to do in this time, basicly don’t have any plans during this time. My kids seem to like Mojave dessert so might work our way back that way. It would be good to get home around the 19th or so.
We have done the Grand Canyon and the Utah Loop, my kids say they are tired of looking at red rocks(poor kids, they still don’t know how well they have it). Just for info, I think you should see everything but put in the effort to see the slot canyons in Escalante. They are incredible and the kids loved them too(if that matters).
Input is greatly appreciated,
