If you're gonna be in the Duke City (Abq) you need to see the Watermelon Mtns (the Sandias). Every evening, when the sun goes down, the Sandia's glow a bit of pink/purple. It only lasts about 10 minutes, but it is amazing.
My backyard faces east, so this is a daily show for us. There aren't too many other places on earth that can change a tone of a mountain range giving the sun and lower layers of atmosphere.
Safe and happy travels.
