Destination Taos

Anne and I visited New Mexico years back. It wasn’t an extensive visit. We were just driving through, and going wherever our Garmin GPS took us (the shortest route). Our drive started in Tucumcari, and continued northwest to Santa Rosa, Santa Fe National Forest, and on northwest to Farmington before entering Utah. We enjoyed the dusty landscape, the dryness, the smells of juniper. New Mexico would be a destination for us in the future, but our time was limited on this scenic 4,000-mile drive from Georgia to Alaska.

Several years later we returned with a few specific places in mind to stop and enjoy. Our main destination was Taos.

Anne, her mother Wendy, who we picked up a few days previous in Oklahoma City, and myself quickly shopped around for an accommodation. The El Pueblo Lodge was our home for the next two days as we explored the old town and businesses along the Paseo Del Pueblo Norte. We dined one evening at the beautiful and traditionally adorned Bella’s Mexican Grill. My chile rellenos de queso still beckons a return trip to Taos. Cobblestone streets, ristras (roasted red peppers) hanging from stucco sided restaurant and home entrances, and the colorful wares sold in local shops, are all a few small details that make visiting Taos a unique and memorable experience.

In time we will return to the area, and explore deeper and further. It’s a worthy stop for anyone, and on our list of places to roam again.

The canyon floor was covered in deep snow. There were areas of open water and then the creek would disappear under layers of snow and ice to appear a ways later. Clues of where its path went while it was not visible...
