  • Went for a day ride from Albuquerque. Didn’t expect to see much wildlife due summertime. The ride in the bosque was still beautiful. We did see some turkeys, deer, and some colorful birds. The roads were very smooth to drive. Was like a maze which made the journey even more fun. Will definitely go back in during the fall migration.
  • Worth a visit even if one isn't a birding enthusiast. Multiple nice walking/hiking trails are available, with varying length and difficulty. The visitor center has a small display about the wildlife to be seen on the refuge. Be sure to bring water on any walk here, especially in hot weather.
