  • You should visit the La Ventana arch in the El Malpais NM, if one is from Albuquerque via IS-40 on the road grants / Gallup, because one has to drive approximately 18 miles one-way from the exit of the IS. Suitable also as a trip from Albuquerque out note - approximately 85 miles oneway. The arch is photographable directly from the parking lot from a distance. The 2nd-largest arch New Mexico develops the photographically perfect effect but only up close. Therefore in any case run the short way up in Archnähe. Our opinion, ideal photo period is the late afternoon, when the low sun in the back beautifully shines the arch. Note: Archfotos with sky in the background are only possible if you leave the barriers at the Trailende and climbs the steep rock climb. This happens but at your own risk, what must assess each themselves. After the visit of the arches you can go bluffs overlook to the sandstone and run along the rim / hiking, enjoy the views of the lava field and the Zuni mountains.
