    Greetings Raquel, Average high/low for June in Santa Fe is 80/52F, however "average" is often deceiving. We are having a lovely cool, somewhat moist start to summer for the last ten days. Very pleasant and in this dry country no one here will complain. Sunny most mornings and clouds up for a time in afternoons. Pack clothing layers for the normal 30-degree swing in day/night temperatures and don't forget the lightweight rain/wind shell particularly if you intend to spend some time in the surrounding mountains.

    Yes! At long last the train between Santa Fe and Albuquerque is finished! It takes about 1.5 hours and has morning trains. Get the schedule here: http://nmrailrunner.com/schedule.asp

    September's "Zozobra" event is really, really interesting. I'd say any time in the fall, since it's not as crowded and the whole place smells like delicious roasted green chiles. The weather can be anywhere from the 30s to the 60s, but it's never bitter cold. A small fire in your adobe is more than enough warmth that time of year. Christmas is also really nice: they put up farolitos (think paper lunch bags with candles in them) on the rooftops. Summer is the most popular time. July 4th weekend is hot and crowded.

    Although many people consider Santa Fe and Taos as desert locales, they're actually at altitudes of around 7,000 feet up in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo mountains. Which means things can get downright chilly in the winter (indeed, they have some highly regarded ski resorts here with some big terrain). So I'm not sure I'd look to NM for your warm-weather break. You're probably best to head toward either Florida (http://vacation.away.com/florida/travel-v1-cid1948-florida-cid1606-beach-vacations.html) or Georgia (http://vacation.away.com/georgia/travel-v1-cid1486-georgia-cid1606-beach-vacations.html) where things are apt to be a little balmier. The other plus of staying on the East Coast is that you'll cut down on flying time and connections (not to mention a longish drive from Albuquerque to Santa Fe), always an advantage when you're flying with a toddler.
