Where and Tips
I visited this place during the Thanksgiving weekend, on the way to Albuquerque Airport from Great Sand Dunes National Park (another story) and was blessed with the sighting of a herd of Mule Deer, not once but twice. The first one was on the way to Bandelier National Monument, when I was accompanied for a couple of miles by this large (~100) herd of deer running parallel to my car, but I chose not to stop and click, just enjoying the experience. Then in the monument, on the way to Alcove House, we saw another big herd (could have been the same) and this time I got some nice photos.
