Solo Trip to Taos

When I first got to Taos, I was in search of some beautiful scenery. I drove to the Taos Ski Valley to see what natural beauty I could find. I went on a mini hike and took A TON of photos. Here are a few of my favorites:

There was a torrential downpour about three hours after I got into town, so I headed off to a restaurant in the historic part of downtown Taos for some Mexican food. Unfortunately, it rained for the rest of the night, so I finished my late dinner and went back to my hotel.

When I woke up, the sun was shining and all of Taos seemed to be glowing and refreshed from the rainfall. I walked around downtown Taos for a few hours before anything was open, except the charming little coffee shops sprinkled throughout the town.

The culture in Taos seems to be heavily influenced by religion. There were several artistic nods to Jesus and Mary painted throughout the town. These renditions were my favorite. There’s just something about bright religious spray paintings complete with modern bandanas.

Stay tuned for more Taos posts! I spoke with several locals while in town, and they shared some interesting stories with me.

Happy travels,

      Thanks, Suzanne! I’ve been busy enjoying life and the last bits of summer, so I haven’t posted in a while. Thanks for the encouragement 😉
