The Land of Enchantment is home to some pretty incredible scenic byways. You can travel through all types of terrain and capture some extraordinary views. During the fall months, there is one scenic byway that you certainly do not want to miss — the High Road to Taos Scenic Byway. Along this byway, you will not only travel through Spanish villages and by ancient pueblos, but when the fall colors are at their peak, you’ll drive through seas of orange, yellow, and amber.
