Heading from Texas to Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta -

Hi Streamers,

Just wondering where others Streamers who have attended the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta may have stayed on the way out. We are leaving from near Ft Worth and thought about staying in Amarillo then Santa Rosa, NM. What do y'all think and is there anything special on the way we should stop and see. Thanks

I like Tucumcari. Always a nice place to stop.
I have read that Sumner Lake SP north of Ft Sumner is a nice place to stay the night. Also the Billy the Kid museum in Ft Sumner sounds interesting to me.
Have a great trip! There are a lot of Texas streamers going to ABQ. I'm sure you'll meet many of them!


Work is never done, so take time to play!

Tucumcari, the town where Colonel Douglas Mortimer stopped in the opening scene of "For a Few Dollars More". It's a neat town to stop and visit. We stopped at the Billy the Kid Museum in Ft. Sumner, but it was closed. In Albuquerque, we ate at The Ranchers Club of New Mexico, at the Crowne Plaza. Best Bacon-Wrapped Buffalo Filet Mignon I've ever eaten.
