Madrid’s a diamond in the rough

MADRID, N.M.–Heading south on Highway 14 (the Turquoise Trail) from Santa Fe and Albuquerque, there's mainly pines, pinons and prairie – till you round a bend about 45 minutes into the journey.
Suddenly, you're in a different world, or at least a different state.
A rustic wooden Welcome to Madrid sign greets you, and also informs you that there's free parking and RVs are welcome. A cutout of a red canine cautions drivers to go slow: "Dogs in the Road."
