One of my favorite areas.
We once mapped out and took a back way to Albuquerque that went over Medano and had an overnighter in the park. My son got hummingbirds to swarm around his red baseball cap. Had a very good conversation with a ranger from the greener end of the political scale, worthwhile. We combined it with a ride on the Cumbres & Toltec RR.
Great trip! The pass looks many times healthier than it did when we took that trip (in a drought).
