We got back last night from the best weekend in Taos. Here are some things we did, and if you are ever in this neck of the woods, I highly recommend all of them, with the exception of walking over the bridge that spans the Taos Gorge. I made it about five feet out and then . . . I believe the phrase that would most accurately describe the moment is completely losing my shit. This is about the second or third time I got vertigo and severe panic on that bridge, and yet I keep making myself try to do it in the name of conquering my fears. Maybe I should just start to let it slide.

Anyway, on to the good stuff:
  • We had lunch at Eske's Brew Pub, including their famous green chile beer and an amazing vegetarian green chile stew.
  • We browsed the shops along the Taos Plaza, including my favorite, FX-18.
  • We stayed at the Historic Taos Inn, had drinks and dinner in the super-lovely lobby, and listened to some great live music by Gregory Alan Isakov and The Freight. They were really good!
  • The next morning we checked out early to take a scenic drive to the mineral springs at Ojo Caliente. You can get a day pass to soak in their mineral springs. It was so amazing to be in my bathing suit in March!
For two homebodies we had quite the full weekend. Billy was good enough to drive so I could take pictures with my Diana camera along the way. I'll post those later, but in the meantime, here are some of the digital shots from our weekend road trip (best viewed large, click on them):

I want to do a lot more traveling in the West, as it still feels so new and huge to me! If you have any recommendations for camping or weekend trips in New Mexico, Colorado, or Arizona, please share them with me!
