Turquoise Trail NM

Well, now that Larry has officially signed his papers to retire at end of December, 2010, it is time for us to start thinking about people we would like to visit and the places we can see along the road...and can get there on our Harley Tri Glide..

On my list to visit is the Turquoise Trail in New Mexico. You can check out this scenic national byway at   The Turquoise Trail encompasses 15,000 square miles and is located in the heart of central New Mexico. The name comes from the turquoise mined by the early Pueblo people as early as 900 A.D., The stone has become nationally recognized as a precious stone to be set in silver and gold.

On the web site, you can plan your route along the Turquoise trail with interactive maps, printable maps and trial guides. There are photos and videos submitted by travelers and you can browse by town, shops, restaurants, or activities, while planning your route.

Parts of the movie “Wild HOGS” with John Travolta, Tim Allen, Martin Lawrence, and William H. Macy, was filmed in Madrid, NM, along the Turquoise Trail and you can purchase Wild HOGS merchandise at “Maggie’s Diner.”
