Madrid, NM Sunday Afternoon Trip
Hello, New Mexico! I thought you might like to know about another cool drive that is "local" to Santa Fe and Albuquerque. Just head from Albuquerque east into the canyon to the Tijeras exit and take NM14 north to Madrid. My daughter and I took this little road trip this last weekend and had a great time. The Ferrari fit right in with all the Harleys parked at the Mine Shaft Tavern, and the green chile cheeseburger was fantastic! This is a scenic drive that you can easily fit into one afternoon. It has enough curves and long straight stretches to make it interesting, as well. We didn't leave Albuquerque until about 1:30 pm and, although we did go on into Santa Fe, we were still back in Albuquerque pretty early. If you haven't been down this road, do it soon......you will love it.
By the way, this is my first time in the Albuquerque/Santa Fe area in the Ferrari, but due to medical issues, I have not been able to get up here (or much of anywhere else). However, I'm doing well enough now to make an occasional trip, and I hope to make it back again soon to meet up with some of the rest of the New Mexico Ferrari bunch for a drive.
Agree that is a nice scenic road trip, can be combined with a quick twisty side excursion up to the Sandia Crest. Next time you make a run to Santa Fe give us a call and we can have coffee and look at the blue car.
Another fun road and scenic trip is from Bernalillo on 550 to route 4 through the Valles Caldera and on to Los Alamos and back through Santa Fe.
There is so much to see and so many uncrowded roads in New Mexico, where do you live?
I live in Roswell, but it is kind of a wasteland for exotic cars here. I have two Ferrari's (355 Berlinetta and 355 Spider), a Lotus Esprit Turbo, a Maserati, several Jaguars and several other "classic" American cars. A friend of mine has a Ferrari 308, a Lotus Elise, a Maserati and several other "classic" American cars. I have heard there is a 360 in Artesia (40 miles away), but have yet to run into him anywhere. Of course, nothing I have compares with your Mondial 500, which I had the privilege of seeing at the Santa Fe Concorso last year.....truly a stunning car and a tribute to your dedication and love for the car. I especially love that you drive it every chance you get!
Hopefully I will be able to get back in your area again soon and connect with you. I get emails from Ron and Shari occasionally to let me know what is going on in the northern part of the state, and I hope to make it up for some of the events, including this years Concorso, but don't know for sure yet.
