Trip report: Rio Chama, New Mexico

I traveled to Abiquiú, New Mexico over Memorial Day weekend to packraft the Rio Chama River plus mountain bike and hike the surrounding area. This is an amazing part of northern New Mexico, removed from the tourist vibe of Taos and Sante Fe. Abiquiú is bounded by the Carson NF to the north and east ...

Re: New Mexico Memorial Day Weekend - Rio Chama and Rio Grande

Thanks for the suggestions Dave! Do appreciate it! Seems Michael's has gone downhill a bit over the last few years. My new fav for breakfast is La Cocina heading south toward Rancho de Taos.

New Mexico Memorial Day Weekend - Rio Chama and Rio Grande

Will be doing laps on the lower Rio Chama Canyon section (non-permit) and Rio Grande Race Course run over Memorial Day weekend. Will also fit in some mountain-biking, trail-running and hot-springing.

Re: Tepui Tents
