We have moved on to Colorado now, but I feel compelled to share our last awesome day in Taos, with our friend Dorcas, who came along to visit both Santa Fe and Taos with us. The visits to both towns were awesome, and most of the sharing was done on Instagram and Facebook, but Thursday included sights around Taos and a volume of photos that begged for a blog post. 🙂
So, when we left Santa Fe ten days ago, we were driving along on I-40 toward Gallup, New Mexico and started seeing what looked like volcanic material. Hmmmm.
Whew, this past week has been a reminder of a few realities of our brand of RV/motorcycle travel: there is never enough time to see everything, do everything, share the things that you have seen and done, or adequate internet access. 🙂
One week ago, we were in lovely Santa Fe, at an even more lovely RV park, Santa Fe Skies, that I wrote about here. My last post covered a wonderful Day in Taos, and next on our list was a monument that we missed the last trip to the area, Bandelier National Monument. Bandelier is about an hours drive from Santa Fe, in White Rock near Los Alamos National Laboratory, and it is a remarkably well-preserved example of an Ancestral Puebloan community thought to have been occupied from the mid-1200s to mid-1500s.
It was a brief visit, but during our stay in Santa Fe, we really wanted to return to Taos, which was a favorite on a long-ago trip to New Mexico.
If ever there was an appropriately named RV park, this is It! I don’t normally write a post solely about an RV park, and this is one of those that you really want to keep to yourself, but it was so special, I decided to share it anyway.
Ok, I will admit it. Even though we planned to come visit the Caverns from the beginning of our trip planning, I thought it might be just a big tourist trap. Au contraire, my friends!
