5 days to wander around New Mexico and Arizona

I have 5 days to wander around New Mexico and Arizona area at the end of April. I will be heading up from Big Bend National park TX then to Eureka Springs Arkansas. Will be camping or would like to camp when I am there. As of now I will be heading to Carlsbad Cave and Roswell. Other then that I will be wandering. Is there any places or roads that should be a must see. Need to get out of the cold upstate NY for a while on 2 wheels.

I will do what I want, when I want and if I don't want to do it, I am not going to do it.

Head over to Cloudcroft, Ruidoso, White Sands Missile Range, Sedona, the Grand Canyon, Antelope Canyon, Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon NP, Monument Valley, Los Alamos National Labs, and Santa Fe.

Some folks seek the comfort of the straight and narrow. Me? I prefer the twisted road.

I will do what I want, when I want and if I don't want to do it, I am not going to do it.

If your coming up 285 to Carlsbad be very careful. It's the deadliest road in this part of the country. Narrow road, lots of pot holes and extra truck parts, lots of oilfield truck traffic.

Like said, Ruidoso, Cloudcroft, Lincoln (as in Billy the Kid) very good rides.

Farther north is Red River, Taos loop called the Enchanted Circle.

If you go west Silver City NM to Alpine AZ is comparable to Deals Gap. You can go make it a loop back to Silver City thru the Gila National Wilderness.

Farther west is Tombstone AZ.

What dates are you coming thru?

Going to do South Utah & North Arizona this summer and looks like North rim of Grand Canyon, Zion NP and Monument Valley are going to be something you don't want to miss. Maybe Lake Powell too.

All area's mentioned are absolutely incredible.

These places will blow your mind and you will not be disappointed that's for sure.
