This Oct. 3, 2012 photo shows fall color along the 85-mile loop in Northern New Mexico known as the Enchanted Circle. Visitors can head out from Taos and take in scenery from Kit Carson National Forest, the Sangre de Cristo mountain range and the Moreno Valley, along with towns like Questa, Red River, Angel Fire and Eagle Nest. The region’s aspen trees turn golden for about two weeks, and while the timing can vary, the color usually peaks around the end of September or first week in October. (AP Photo/Beth J. Harpaz) less
