This series of day hikes through the desert, river valleys, and alpine forests of northern New Mexico can vary from an easy two hours of walking to more than seven hours each day. One day, for example, you can choose either the 8.3-mile Frijoles Canyon Trail, following the Anasazi paths through the red rocks, or the 11.5-mile alternate route. You'll do a walking tour of Santa Fe, explore the mesa-lined Rio Grande valley and gorge, and visit Georgia O'Keefe's Ghost Ranch. The digs are first rate, and meals are included. You'll stay two nights in Santa Fe, one in Taos, and wind up in Espanola at the luxurious Rancho de San Juan.
