Lynn,

Wow, that sure is quite a list.
It seem that the only place they left out, that I though would be there for sure, was the Alabama Hills west of Lone Pine California.
The scenes that I though looked like the pictures on this post of the Organ mts were shot at Gafton Utah.
Just goes to show how much my mind is getting wrapped up in planning for this trip.

I haven't read all the suggestions so far, but just enough to see some really good ones. I did not see White Sands, nor Bisti Wilderness. Bisti is an other-worldly, desolate area with many square miles of hiking available.

While Chaco Canyon is one of the best Anasazi ruins, the ones in Aztec, NM are good and easier to access.

Many other good spots in NM, but you'll never see all that has been mentioned here. Have fun.

Sparker1,
I like the suggestions. Thank you.
White Sands was on my list, but I didn't know about either the Bristi Wilderness or Aztec National Monument. Both of these look like they would be right on my route north.
Have pretty much decided to not take the travel trailer, which will leave us free to explore any road we can get a 4x4 truck down.

If you have time, take a look at my photo gallery, find New Mexico and check out the sights.

New Mexico State Parks have the best deal. If you have a annual park pass, it is $4 for W/E site. If not, it is $14 for same site. Either way it is a great deal. We buy a non-resident park pass for $225. because we love NM and spend time there going west in spring and heading south in October.

Thanks Texas Two Steppers. I will keeep that in mind as we travel around New Mexico. If we don't take the travel trailer, we won't need the h2o or power, but showers sure would be nice.

Well, no sense me adding anything! If Desert Hawk responds you will, without question, get information and picture overload! :-)

Average temps will be about mid 90's in Phoenix.

We have hiked in several places but think you will find them in the lists above - would specifically mention hiking thew Tent Rocks Nat'l Mon just outside of Santa Fe if you are in the area; very interesting hiking and not well known (might be in Desert Hawks epistle - not sure). Gila Cliff Dwellings if at all possible. And, when looking at the Catwalk info you should look at hikes that spin off it on trails. You want to come south of Phoenix take a look at Picacha Peak; testy hike there. There is a lot down here.

And we love Bend as well - great pool(s) for swimming.

Be safe - have fun.
