The museum is open Tuesday through Sunday from 9 AM to 5 PM. The Spanish, however, were not the first to inhabit the area. More than 200 million years ago, New Mexico's San Juan Basin was part of a flood plain with dense tropical forests and was home to thousands of dinosaurs. Just across the street from the Albuquerque Museum, a life-sized dinosaur guards the entrance to the New Mexico Museum of Natural History, 1801 Mountain Road, 505/841-8837. A Quetzalcoatlus with a 35-foot wingspan soars above the lobby floor of this museum that provides a vivid look at 12 billion years of history.
It's a sound policy to take only photographs and leave only footprints. Before leaving a campsite, replace rocks and scatter leaves and twigs to restore the area to a near-natural condition. Pack out all your garbage and any other trash you may find. Take care with human waste; it should be buried 100 feet or more from any water source and not near possible campsites. Use only biodegradable soap and, whenever possible, wash from a bucket of water far from running sources. Do not travel into a fenced area.
Figure out where you want to go, then consult the Forest Service, BLM, or Park Service for up-to-date topographical maps and information. Discuss with them the difficulty of various trails and technical climbing skills or specialized equipment that may be required. USGS (US Geological Service) maps can be purchased for around $3 each. They show contour lines that indicate the relative steepness of the terrain. Some adventures in this area can be accomplished easily alone, while others require special gear, permits, and expertise.
