More New Mexico photos

More travel in and around Santa Fe...

On the way to Taos we stopped at the Classical Gas Museum - very cool!


A postcard from Taos Pueblo where we took a very interesting tour - an excellent place to learn more about Native American culture and lifestyles:


The gorge bridge near Taos:


And the Rio Grande below it:


John took the hard way across:



We visited the "Earthship" community near Taos. They build mostly-off-the-grid houses, in New Mexico and around the world. We could learn a lot from their systems and design. Some photos of the display buildings:




The drive (both the Low and High roads) between Santa Fe and Taos was also very scenic.

Back in Santa Fe, we spent a day on Museum Hill:


It said "Try These On", so how could we resist??


Tea and dessert at the Chocolate Maven, yay!


Folk art on Canyon Road:


Outdoor furniture and/or art:


We (sadly) brought Kathy and Bob to Albuquerque so they could pick up their rental car and head west. What a wonderful week we had with them!


Time for us to drive back to Texas...
