It looks like one possible route that might be flatter would be to go through Velarde, but make sure you double check everything if you're planning a road trip.
Elevation data comes from different sources and may not reflect true
driving conditions, so talk to other RVers if you're concerned about
steep grades. If you're planning to drive in the winter and you want to avoid snow, check the road conditions from Taos to Santa Fe (New Mexico). You can also view a 3-D map of Taos elevation or Santa Fe (New Mexico) elevation.
