A walk around Santa Fe is a must IMO...

Drive up to Taos for some great scenery.

why is this in the EOS Camera forum? There is a General Discussion forum better suited for this.

Rocket park at the gate to White Sands missile range and White sands national monument. They're about 20-30 miles apart.

High road from Santa Fe to Taos is a great drive. 84/285 north out of Santa Fe to NM 76 to El Santuario de Chimayo then back to 76 to NM 75 to NM 518 to Rancho De Taos and into Taos.

Also the drive north on 64 out of Taos to NM 522 to Questa to NM 38 through Red River to 64 back to Taos.

550 north of Bernalillo north to NM 4 through the Jemez Mts to Bandolier National Monument.

The Turquoise Trail north from Albuquerque NM 14 north to Santa Fe. Spend some time in Madrid. Its on the way up to Santa Fe.

Lots of mountains, almost ghost towns and old missions on these drives.

In addition to all of the great places that Allen mentioned, the whole state is a great place for photography. The Pecos Wilderness in the north, the Gila Wilderness in the south (if any of it is left after the horrible fires around Mogollon and Whitewater Baldy), Lincoln National Forest, Gila Cliff Dwellings near Silver City, Santa Fe, Taos, Red River Gorge, WSMR, White Sands National Monument, Pueblo Bonito, Chaco Canyon, Carlsbad Caverns, Elizabethtown (aka, E-Town in Moreno County, a ghost town which is near Angel Fire), Pinos Altos (near Silver City), Lamy (find out how it was connected to the Manhattan Project) and on and on.

I used to backpack for many years in the Gila Wilderness and a couple times in the Pecos Wilderness.

I think that he is talking about using his Canon EOS camera. Where to use it is just as important as how to use it. ;)
