Jun 11-19, 2008 - Southwest Conference in Santa Fe, New Mexico
New Mexico II put on a great conference in Santa Fe. NM-II had a ride up to Taos and the Taos Pueblo. The pueblos are one of the oldest continuously inhabited communities in the United States. We also enjoyed a ride south and up to Sandia Crest Mountain at 10,678 feet. Quite a view from up there! On the way back to Santa Fe, we stopped in Madrid, location of portions of the movie Wild Hogs. After the conference, Clint had planned a tour that took us to the Four Corners Monument where Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah meet. Then onto Mesa Verde National Park in SW Colorado to examine it’s well-preserved Ancestral Puebloan cliff dwellings. From there we rode east to Durango then north on U.S. 550 including the “Million Dollar Highway” stretch from Silverton to Ouray and continuing north until we picked up I-70 to head east and home. It was a memorable trip!
