Planning a first trip to Silver City (from Santa Fe) mid April and wonder if practical to do a loop from T & C using 152 to Silver City and back via Pie Town. One night T & C and one night Silver City or two nights Silver City? Shall I skip the loop idea altogether to allow more time for City of Rocks/exploring Silver City? I know it rarely snows but have some concerns -- is it worth an overnight in T & C? --could always go back via 180/26 to Hatch I suppose. Appreciate advice. Thanks.
