An Outdoor New Mexico Paradise! Migrating birds, wild life, and the most amazing scenery, we will visit history and nature on this 6 hour tour. Driving south from Albuquerque, we follow the Camino Real, the historical King’s road of the Conquistadors. We follow the Rio Grande River passing by the villages of Los Lunas, the Isleta Pueblo, Belen, and continue through Socorro to our turn off at San Antonio. Each village is part of a rich history of Native American and Spanish Culture we will share as we travel. As we turn east, we see the flood plain, re-created in 1939 to sustain the migrating birds. Our first vision of the refuge is from the Visitor Center overlooking the lakes filled with as many as 100,000 Snow Geese. The white wings cover the lake creating the illusion of snow on the water. At moments, the birds rise as one and fill the air with the sounds of thousands of wings. The adventure begins.
