After we had driven about 3,300 miles we had finally made it to Taos, NM! This was the stop that we had been looking forward to. After seeing so many beautiful places on our trip, we were worried that Taos might have lost it’s majesty. Although it took Sara an hour or so to get the feel, Taos was as inviting as ever. We pulled into town and cranked up the KTAOS.
We found a cozy spot to camp in the Taos Ski Valley and started our 9 day camp out. Once again, we didn’t have water or electricity.
Each of us picked our favorite thing to do in town. The John Dunn Bridge is always a must see. Usually we all love swimming in the Rio Grande. But, sadly, after seeing such clear, beautiful water on the other legs of the trip, the water just didn’t seem inviting. Maddie barely even stepped foot in the water. We did get a couple of good pictures of the kids before they were begging to leave.
We all loved taking afternoon naps.
The kids always enjoy a trip to one of the coolest toy stores around, Twirl. I like loading up on “stocking stuffers” here while the kids play. We actually visited here twice this trip.
