New Mexico’s Enchanted Circle
Length: 83-mile loop
Driving Time: 2 hours
Route: Starting in Taos, head north on Route 522 towards southern Colorado. “This is the high-desert portion of the road, which is jaw dropping. Big, sweeping 360-degree views revealing the same imagery that Georgia O’Keeffe heroically painted,” says Brad Richards, director of styling at Harley Davidson. At the small town of Questa, turn east onto 38, which will drop you into mountainous terrain, climbing and descending through river valleys, foothills, and mountains.
Where to Stop: Eagle Nest and Angel Fire are both home to ski areas and are abundant with eating and drinking options. Or hop on Highway 64 for a seven-mile detour, where you can look down onto the Rio Grande.Back to top
