Yah, I was just goofin on the "chile". All of the places you mention will be good. If you do in July or Aug, the 4 corners area can be pretty hot, and the mountain part a little cooler. That said, any of the area can get summer showers that can be pretty heavy. If you come through Taos, give a shout - 758-eight three six six. We'll show you the good chile.
