Yes been up there a few times. In fact I will be up there for Memorial Weekend with a Hot Air Balloon pilot to balloon in the Rio Grande Gorge. That is a nice area. If you stay in Taos, you will see the Rio Grande gorge (and gorge bridge). A nice day trip is the Enchanted Circle, Taos to Angel Fire, then north to Red River, through Questa and then back to Taos. If you have a chance, instead of going east from Alamosa, go north up to Buena Vista, Co. See the row of 14000 ft mountains in that area.
