Blink, and you'll miss it...
Escondida, New Mexico is a very small town off I-25 about three miles north of Socorro. At first, it may seem as though there is no reason to stop here but a bit of exploring revealed two interesting and worthwhile locations.
Madrid is a must-see stop on New Mexico's Turquoise Trail
For those travelers touring New Mexico's Turquoise Trail, Madrid will surely be high on the list of "must-see" locations. Even if art galleries and coffee shops aren't your thang, most people like food and the Mine Shaft Tavern has the best burgers around.
Personally, I have no interest in being where the tourists are but there is another secret destination that makes Madrid worthwhile.

Corrales, New Mexico
The Rio Grande Bosque in Corrales, New Mexico is wild and unruly. Prickly thickets surround the Winter Trees and provide habitat for many species of animals and migratory birds.
