* The valley of the Rio Grande, also called the [[Española (New Mexico)|Española]] Valley in New Mexico, is on the west side of the range, and offers additional attractions: whitewater on the Rio for the outdoors enthusiast, a scenic drive for the more sedentary, more folk art at the pueblos as well as Hispanic centers, and surprisingly enough, some interesting wineries.
