hello nm'ers... excuse my xpost from your sticky thread but im not getting any bites on that and looking for some info before i take in a couple days (to visit your state!).
ive edited/added-to the prev post but here it is...
hey all... me and some buds are heading to taos/af from flagstaff later this week and am looking for a bit of advice/beta. we are planning on riding south boundary or something similar one day and af for 2 days. any help is appreciated... ive scoured this forum and found some good info but im still left with two questions...
1) how is the camping situation on the carson/santa fe around angel fire and to a lesser extent, taos? is it pretty much find a fs road and camp or is it more limited to developed campsites. im interested in undeveloped, find a good spot in the woods, kinda car camping... near angel fire would be best but dont mind driving a bit to and from in order to get a stellar spot (i.e., kick-ass views). ive spend a fair amount of time on both forests (several weeks each) but i was working and wasnt paying attention to the primitive camping scene.
2) is south boundary the one if you only had a day? im looking for a big pedal with lots of tech... 4-5 hr ride. it doesnt need to be in taos/af necessarily... driving for the goods isnt an issue. are there better techy, big xc loops in los alamos, taos (ski resort/big peaks general area), red river, chama, etc ... maybe some other high elevation/ridgeline stuff other than sbt??? if the sbt is the one, are there any good options rather than the hwy back?
im asking b/c im a bit leary of the out and back nature of sbt with only one vehicle and riding the road back sounds like about the last thing i want to do on a riding mini-vacation.
thanks again for feedback... and of course the obligatory... if you ever make it out to flagstaff/sedona and need a trail guide i will be more than happy to get you to the goods and maybe even do some trail guiding if i can pull it off!
btw... ive been perusing your forum for a couple weeks on and off and i must say you guys have some insanely good photographers on here. between the sunset and trail pic threads i have stolen more than a few mtbnate (and others) pics for screen savers and desktops... props to all!
