    Driving the family up to Santa Fe, NM, for spring break this week. Planning on some skiing, but will probably do some other things, too. I enjoy the board's thoughts on destinations, so I hereby humbly request the board's input on restaurants, sights, etc.

    Albuquerque is close enough you can do a day or two there if you want.

    I was going to say, beware of a religious hippie bumming hillbilly heroin up round Santa Fe way. But he's back in Texas now, so you're safe.

    Lots of traveling to New Mexico.

    I, for one, look forward to getting a green chile cheeseburger at Blake's and, maybe, a breakfast burrito.

    I've driven New Mexico end to end several times of late. Some beautiful scenery for a midwest guy. Watching the threads for things to hit my next time through.

    OK, so that is a definite on the old "must do" list!

    Georgia O'Keefe Museum. Loretto Chapel. El Santuario de Chimayo (up the road, near Espanola).

    Visit Taos and Los Alamos and Abiquiu.

    If you go back in the spring, ride the Cumbres-Toltec Scenic Railroad from Chama to Antonito, Colorado.

    Likewise, the Opera once the season opens.

    Am back and had a great time. We passed on Blake's -- local tourist info person said Blake's has gone "too commercial" -- but tried out Bert's (just across the street). Fabulous. So good, in fact, that at Los Alamos the next day, I tried a local diner's version and it was damn good, too!

    Thanks for all the tips everyone.
