DH and I are planning a trip to NM in December. We will be driving from Tucson to Silver City and spending 1 night there. After visiting Santa Fe and ABQ, we will be returning to Silver City for 2 more nights.
We would like to visit Gila Cliff Dwellings, maybe City of Rocks SP, as well as museums in town.
Would the cliff dwellings be a full day trip - how bad is the road there (from what I have read, it is quite narrow and winding). What about road conditions in December?
Is City of Rocks SP worthwhile visiting?
Also looking for advice on somewhere to stay - either a B & B or hotel would be okay - would like to be able to walk to downtown.
Anything else I should need to know, don't hesitate to add it in.
