So how about El Prado, NM! El Prado is an unincorporated area on north of Taos. It is famous for being the home of the Millicent Rogers Museum, but what really makes it stand out is the presence there of the Guadalajara Grill North, "the Guad" (to locals).

But, of course, there is major controversy here. Airstream friends of ours live on the south side of Taos, and, of course, they mean Guadalajara Grill South when they talk about "the Guad." Little do they know.

How about poor Dawson, NM. Still some visible remains, but not just a whole lot. The ghosttowns.com site has plenty of pics, though.

I'll have to go with one of my favorite places - river rafting at its finest in New Mexico...

Embudo Station, New Mexico: It is on NM State Road 68. The Embudo Station is located 2.9 miles south of the intersection of NM State Road 75, near where the Embudo River flows into the Rio Grande.

The name "Embudo", meaning "funnel" in Spanish, was given to the area by early Spanish settlers because the spot where the Rio Embudo flowed between two distinctive cone shaped hills reminded them of a funnel.
Embudo was founded in 1881 when the Denver and Rio Grande Western Railroad opened a station (depot) there on its Chili Line. The station was named after the village San Antonio de Embudo,[1] located 2 miles up the Embudo River, and until 1902 both communities shared a post office and were known jointly as Embudo.

And don't forget Sugar's fabulous green chili cheeseburgers at Embudo! The place is located just north of Embudo station, but before you get to the "gas station" museum.

There's room for an Airstream at Sugar's, but don't go there with the rig if you're coming from the north, only from the south. (It's too hard to get back out on the highway, given the curves in the highway at that point.)

We'll try getting in there next time with the rig! Thank's for the heads-up! Art

An R could be a lot in New Mexico, but I'd include Rinconada. Rinconada is a small village in the Rio Grande gorge area. It's known for, well, fruit and veggie gardens, tourism business (mostly related to the river), and the only health care between Taos and Espanola.
