makes me miss when I lived up the pecos canyon. A fan of red or green, you have to admit there isnt anything like a hatch chilli. I really miss having the powdered red ones to make chilli and breakfast buritos with.

red from the pods

But if your making Red, the powder is convinient but to get ALL the flavor you need to make it from the pods. Blend them, strain the chili, add the special secret spices and love and you will have the best red chili you have ever tasted. It's not a fast process, it takes patience, add the chili to your favorite meat, corn tortilla, cheese and oh don't forget the Sopapillas made from scratch.

Um good.

You might ask where do you find this delicious meal.....often found in grandma's kitchen but I get it at any of the 23 firestations in Abq. Made by some of the best chef's in the southwest.

We stayed In Bernallio (approximately 12 North of Albuquerque on Hwy 25) over Thanksgiving at The Coronado State Monument Rv Park ( run by city of Bernallio). Very nice spot & very inexpensive. $18 per nite, $100 per week. Each site has it's own small pavillion with table. You can walk right down to The Rio Grande, where Coronado stayed. Only it does not have sewer. Need blue tank or large holding tanks. Is right behind the Jackalope. Also great food in Bernallio at Abuelita's.

NM has many very nice state parks with RV sites. You might want to pick up a brocure at any state park office.
The one in Deming is up on a mountain overlooking the city, great views, great hiking, not very crowded when we were there last January.

By-the Way:
If you get the chance to travel north of Santa Fe, I recommend spending a day or two at the hot springs at ď Ojo CalienteĒ http://www.ojocalientespa.com/. We visited it a few times, overnighted once, but not with our Airstream 'cause we own one at the time. However they do have a RV park with limited services.
Itís a down-to-earth spa for the local folks, without the expensive fancy spa stuff. For our next A/S trip we have Ojo Caliente and Chaco Canyon on our itinerary.

You will love Chaco, however, I wouldnt take an airstream there. The roads are worse than bad and will shake your coach to pieces. There are RV sites in Farmington though.

Carlsbad Caverns for New Years!!!!

Hi all -

As the tag line said, we are off to Carlsbad Caverns for New Years! The weather looks like it is going to be VERY nice and warm with crisp evenings. This will be our first outing with ALL of the family going in 1 car and returning in the same vehicle.

My wife work schedule precluded this arrangement on our last big outing in the summer - we drive and she flew and met us, then she flew back and we drove back and had THE BEST time! She missed all that, and now she wont be.

Planning to go through Rozwell and see the "Area 51" and other alien related stuff - all on the 27th. Then CC on the 28th. Will be leaving the 2nd. WE have several cave trips planned and even got tickets for the "Holiday Boat Ride" around the lake - to see all the decorations that the whole town has pu tout and lit!!!! Should be big fun! I'll report back if it isn't! Count on that,

Plan says to do full days at the caves with a side trip to Slaughter Canyon cave. That will be day 1. Day 2 will be back in the 'Major cave' and getting the "Uber" leader to show us places that many dont see simply because they do not ask. Dude, I CAN ask! Watch me.......

Does anyone have any strong opinion about going to ElPaso - or is that a destination that I can easily skip and not have issues from poeple that live or travel there, who will say - Man!!!!!! you were right there and didn't call/visit/hangout/etc....

I will gladly do those things, if they got me to find a great place(s) that I might have found in a month or 2 (which I don't have) - so I am relying on YOU!!!

You, who know Carlsbad Caverns and surrounds and only a few do - you, are the ones that will tell mw of your favorite resaurant, shop(s), places to visit, bars, Must see Firetowers or trains, Buildings in styles that ammuse, awe, and fall ontop of one due to poor care.

I want it ALL! I want to 'live' as a Carlsbadian!!! Where do I sign up!??

BUT, BUT, BUT ---- I NEED Info First. Post haste as we are leaving the 27th. I can be reached at factor8man@yahoo.com, or for those that prefer to hear the rattling timbere in my voice can gladly reach me at 505-440-0046. I would love to hear from you.

Ciao

Axel

Hey Axel,

As you drive down toward Carlsbad, keep your eyes open for Pronghorn Antelope along the way!

Merry Christmas

Pronghorn....

Thanks for the heads up on the Pronghorn. If I hit one, or see one that was hit, do you want me to stop and get you a nice head to mount? Kidding!

Planning on taking the trip really slow - to enjoy the slower vacation pace - and enjoy the surroundings, and the magic that the cave wieves. We plan to get lots of hiking in while we are there. Try ot get off the beaten path and see what there is to find when we get 'there'.....

Will post when we get back - photos if the digital is cooperating when we get back. Anyway, have a very Happy Holidays and a most Happy New Year.

Axel

Another opportunity NM offers is fantastic flyfishing on the San Juan River. One of the West's premier trout spots. The San Juan is east of Farmington and easy to get to. Camping is available at several places including Abe's. The best area for fishing is above the town of Navajo Dam just below the dam itself. Wading is the way to do it but stay out of the rapid water. Plenty of calmer and slower water to fish in. If you need a guide, recommended for first timers, arrange one through the Float-n-Fish fly shop in Navajo Dam.

Axel - have a great, relaxing trip, ask lots of questions and post pictures when you return. Have a merry and a happy...

Be sure to sign up for the private tours - they are REALLY cool - you have never seen darkness - I mean pitch black until you have been in some of those private tour only caves. This time of year you can probably get away with hiking back out (no supposed to) be with so few people at the caves, should be able to.

It's not much, full hook ups and around $20 a night. Try the "Green" chile cheesburger at the Sportsman.

Sounds like a nice trip... I got to live in Carlsbad a few years ago and throughly enjoyed it. While you are that close consider spending a day or so at Guadalup National park just 30 minutes or so past Carlsbad Caverns. It has the highest peaks in TX, miles and miles of hiking trails and lots of deer, birds and other wildlife. McKitrick canyon trail head has a trail to the ex-ranchers rock house with a slab stone roof, this is a great hike, 2-3 miles as best I can remember, in the shade of tall trees A lot of big pine trees at the higher elevations , but this time of the year it can still get warn in there.. 2-3 miles as best I can remember..
The road from Guadalupe NP to El Paso is Not very scenic, salt flats, scrub brush.

Guadalupe Mountains National Park

We will be in the area the second week in January pulling a 34 foot trailer. The map shows 8751 foot elevation. That sounds scary to me pulling a trailer. How are the roads? We have been to Carlsbad before but plan to go again. Do we want to leave the Airstream somewhere else? I really don't remember how the terrain was around Carlsbad. It has been many years since we were there. Probally about 30 years ago and without a trailer.
