  • Beautiful enjoyable scenic drive. Landscape changes. We could see the smoke and clouds from the fire. Really loved the drive from Chinayp.

  • Enjoyed both High and Low roads. Would probably take both again! Low Road north to Taos, and High Road south out of Taos. BTW Bandelier NM is a must see.
