We are heading to Angel Fire from Amarillo. Being unfamiliar with New Mexico’s freeways, we plan to take freeway 40 then 84 to Las Vegas. What is the best way to take to Angel Fire from Las Vegas? 94 then 434?
What is your suggestion for a safe trip from Amarillo to Angel? We have kids with us so safety is the utmost consideration.
