I am trying to plan a trip to New Mexico. Hubby would like to see the Carlsbad Caverns. I would like to visit the Rio grande Nature Center and Bosque Del Apache NWR and to do some birding. If possible I would like to see if we could include the Balloon festival or at least see them from a distance. I saw that a float trip if planned at the right time we could see the balloons.
Is this all possible in a weeks time, flying into Albuquerque and renting a car. I would need to find hotels close to these places I mentioned. Also, we do not mind driving big distances, we have been on many road trips.
Thanks for any help,
