Preferably they would be close to I-25 and relatively unrestored, but as I am completely unfamiliar with this area I am also willing to travel a ways. Any suggestions would be much appreciated! Emails would be fine. Thanks!

: Hey Scott-take highway 4 (Turquoise Trail) from Santa Fe to Albuquerque instead of I-25. You'll run into the ghost towns of Cerrillos, Madrid, and Golden. The side trip is very scenic and worth your time. If you have children traveling with you, stop at the Tinkertown Museum at the turnoff to the ski area. If you have no children with you, get the nachos and some beers at the Mine Shaft Tavern in Madrid. Cool place!
