I'm looking at buying the annual pass so we can hit up a lot of the national parks and areas in NM. I saw that some areas are a bit pricey, so I was wondering if it's the better part of valor to buy the pass or pay as we go?
There will be two of us. We're planning on running down from ABQ to Roswell, down as far as Carlsbad, going across to White Sands from Artesia, up through ToC and ending in Santa Fe (flying home from ABQ). The majority of the time will be spent in Santa Fe.
I also saw where some of the areas might be closed due to fire hazards, we're going this September.
