    If you're in Roswell...

    ... it'd be a shame to miss Carlsbad Caverns, as it's so close. One of the most scenic of the big caves.

    Everyone has been teling you about places to stop. There are also some great roads to ride.

    191 between Alpine and Clifton in Arizona as well as 78 that runs from just south of Clifton to the northeast into New Mexico. I make detours to ride these roads.

    Calculating at 300 pixels-per-inch (that's a lot, double what is considered "safe" when printing in a magazine) you get 14.2 inches.

    So, a 16 x 20 inch print is not out of the question, but it does depend on how fussy you are.

    My EOS 5D MkII does 21 mp, or 5616 ?ù 3744. Again at 300ppi that's 18".... so not tons of difference, considering the dollar diff!

    on the subject of where to ride instead of what to see, I highly recommend AZ/NM 78 that mccodavj mentions above, which crosses the state line near the south end of the "good part" of 191. but that is probably very far to the southwest from where the OP plans to ride.

    Another great area to ride is in the area of the Los Alamos National Labs.

    Go soothingly through the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.

    point well taken!

    this was the county road 105 that goes along the western border of the Missile Range... no huge craters, but my buddy *was* taken out by the sand!



    here is another shot, heading up the North Star Road, FS150, which goes north from the Silver City area, through the Gila Wilderness.
