“We shall find peace,” Anton Chekhov once said. “We shall hear angels, we shall see the sky sparkling with diamonds.”
Isn’t it time you, too, found peace, traveler? Isn’t it time you saw the beauty of the heavens from a hilltop, undisturbed by city lights and the hustle and bustle of everyday life? Peace and starlight are waiting for you in the wide-open expanses of New Mexico, and it’s time for you to put down your smartphone and remember what life is all about. Tucked beneath the shadow of Agua Fria Peak is the tiny village where you can do just that, and our hotels in Angel Fire, NM are the perfect starting point.
Satiate your need for solitude with one of our rental cars in Angel Fire. Turn the station to music you find pleasing, then glide toward the base of Agua Fria. From there, the mountain’s hiking and ski paths open up to you. Pass through thick forests where the only sound you’ll hear are birds calling to one another. How high will you climb? And was that a bighorn sheep, or the elk reputed to live in the Sangre de Cristo range?
Don’t return to our Angel Fire hotels just yet. Instead, relax in your vehicle just outside of town, well away from the light pollution that plagues everyday life. Just as Chekhov said, you shall see the glittering jewels of the universe spreading out across the heavens. Here the blanket of stars will wink at you as if they’ve let you in on some cosmic secret. How many shooting stars can you spot? Perhaps it’s time to make a wish.
In time, you may hear the call of the city once more. You don’t need to travel far to find it; just 150 miles to the south is Albuquerque, with its mysterious petroglyphs and mighty Sandia Mountains. Make your way to “The Duke City” and enjoy what it has to offer. Don’t feel compelled to leave too soon; our Albuquerque hotels provide a safe space for you to rest your head when the time calls for it.
Trust Travelocity to help you secure the perfect accommodation, no matter where you’re staying. Whether you seek hotels near Angel Fire, NM or want to travel far beyond the desert, we have something for you. Travel wisely, old friend, and continue your search for starlight.
