Ep. 233: New Mexico’s Turquoise Trail | RV travel camping

Avatar admin | December 15, 2021

New Mexico's capital city of Santa Fe is a charming town with a distinct influence from its Spanish heritage. We've visited Santa Fe before, so we want to see and film something new to us to share with you on this episode of Grand Adventure. The Turquoise Trail is a National Scenic Byway that extends southward from Santa Fe along New Mexico State Road 14 to the east side of Sandia Peak, where it turns northwestward to return to Interstate 25 via the Sandia Crest Scenic Byway. Several small towns along the route, including Los Cerillos, Madrid and Golden, retain and preserve the area's unique history. We'll travel and explore the Turquoise Trail, and also venture into Santa Fe to see the San Miguel Chapel, the oldest church in the continental United States.

We've opened a Grand Adventure store on Amazon! https://www.amazon.com/shop/GrandAdventure Unlike other Amazon shops, every single item you see in our store is hand picked from things we use ourselves in our own Grand Adventures, from RV stuff to our dogs and even photography and videography. We've tried it, we've tested it, and we can heartily recommend it. No random stuff or paid product placements.

It costs you no more to shop Amazon with us, but by shopping our store a portion of each sale goes to bringing you more and better Grand Adventure videos! Thank you for clicking through to give us a look!

Welcome to Grand Adventure, a YouTube channel that focuses on RV-centric outdoor activities including not only of course camping, but also mountain biking, hiking, kayaking, skiing and more, always filmed in stunning 4K.

We're based in Salt Lake City, Utah during the winter months, and invite you to come along as we travel all around the U.S. My wife Patricia and I, and dog Zoe are avid boondockers, so while you'll occasionally find us in RV parks or even dry campgrounds, we're usually camped in some of the most remote and beautiful spots that you could ever pull a travel trailer into. We've now transitioned from "long-timing" for six months a year, to living and traveling in our RV full-time.

We'll provide beautiful travel videos, as well as some tips and insight on trip planning, and equipping and maintaining your RV to make your next adventure a grand one indeed! So, subscribe to make sure that you catch every episode, and remember...life is nothing but a Grand Adventure!
