The Turquoise Trail is Rt14 from the East Mountains of Albuquerque
(Tijeras) to Santa Fe. It is a National Scenic Byway and is awesome, spectacular, varying, and surprising! Within this 50 mile or so drive are Sandia Crest (Sandia Ski):
And is one of the most awesome views I’ve ever laid my eyes on!
All along the Turquoise are ghost towns in Golden:
And by far the most famous Madrid:
..due to the hit Wild Hogs with John Travolta.
Madrid has, over the last decade become mainstream reformed ghost town and mecca for artists, art patrons and tourists headed up/down the Turquoise Trail.
We’ve been back down many times in the past 3 years!
