If you're looking for a relaxing place to visit this is it. I visited in the summer/early fall and it was beautiful. We walked around a bit, visited the chocolate store, because who doesn't love chocolate? Sad, there was no dark chocolate. The town grocery...More

The Red River canyon from Questa is frankly not as nice as coming in via the Cimmaron Canyon or taking the Taos to Angel Fire route. It is nice but in the relative terms of this area not essential.

The drive up the canyon from Questa to Red River, NM, is interesting, in part for the forests and campgrounds along the river, and in part for the giant molybdenum mine along the road. As needed, the mine reopens for business as it did recently....More

We drove out to view the canyon and it was absolutely stunning and I high recommend taking the trip. The bridge spanning the canyon is there for those who are brave enough.
