Taos, NM, NM, USA
Driving from Taos to Santa Fe, NM we ventured over the Rio Grande on a detour to the Earthships. About 10 miles west of Taos, this 500+ foot bridge is extravagant. A fear of heights and high bridges will not help you over this bridge, but what...

60 St Francis Plaza, Ranchos De Taos, NM 87557, USA
In Ranchos de Taos, the San Francisco de Asis Church is the most photographed and painted building in the state. I was once in Boston at a gallery and saw a painting that was simply a sandy-brown curve and blue sky. I knew immediately it was this...

"Red or green?" In New Mexico, you'll be asked that question often--it's literally the "official state question," decreed by the legislature: do you want smoky red chile, or fruity-but-hot green chile sauce? If you can't decide, say "Christmas,"...

The area around Taos, New Mexico is quite volcanic, with extinct volcanos rising blue in the distance. The basalt plain west of town is cut deeply by the Rio Grande and can be viewed for dramatic effect in the afternoons when the shadows delineate...

Just west of Taos, the high sagebrush plateau of northern New Mexico abruptly gives way: the Rio Grande Gorge. Eight hundred feet below, the River grinds inexorably away into the earth... Wake up early, lace up your running shoes and head out of...

If you've got your fly rod, hiking shoes, ski gear or mountain bike you'll find plenty of reasons to stop and play on the drive from Santa Fe to Taos. But at the very least be sure to slow down and check out some of the amazing restaurants, gas...

Few places in North America are anchored in a heritage like the Pueblo of Taos. This is the longest inhabited living arrangement in the US. The Pueblo still has ten families of around 150 native people working to maintain the culture and the adobe...

Taos Pueblo, NM, USA
One of the iconic sights of the American Southwest, Taos Pueblo has been inhabited for at least a thousand years. The adobe architecture seems to spring, organic, from the earth at the foot of Taos Mountain. It's a UNESCO World Heritage site, but...

Ranchos De Taos, NM, USA
Driving north from Santa Fe, just as you approach Taos, turn your head to the right, and there it is--the San Francisco de Asis Church. This 18th-century adobe mission architecture just south of Taos, NM, has become an icon due to the paintings of...

10 miles north of Taos (you head out of town and turn left at the "blinking light"), the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge, recently renovated in 2012, will give you a dizzying sense of vertigo and the opportunity to take pictures that will make you look...

In the new Rio Grande del Norte National Monument near Taos, formerly known as the Wild Rivers Recreation area, there is a loop trail leading to two marvelous arsenic springs. For the desert environment, these are massive springs. Both the Big...

My two friends and I soaked in some springs along the river. We stayed for three hours until we were fully pruned. To make the organic experience complete, an old naked hippie joined later ranting about anarchy. I swear that water has healing...

We first spied this mural be-decked building during a winter drive to Taos from Santa Fe on the High Road. An old stick-on lettered sign with an arrow announced "Sugar Nymphs", pointing towards another door with a sign that said simply "Theater"....

This is what I love about seeing a region from the saddle of a bicycle. You're able to really witness all that is around you, none of it becomes a blur outside of a speeding car window. It was late morning on the second day of a six day biking New...

4o miles into a hot and hilly bicycle ride, seeing the Taos Mesa Brewing Company rising from the land scape, had me worried it was all a mirage. Thankfully, the restaurant, brewery and live music space was the real deal and a place that I can't...

There's always a wait at this family-run mainstay which serves a bevy of Southwestern winners a la the shrimp burritos and carne adovada (red chile–marinated pork) and chili. A trip here is best summed up as friendly, prompt and delicious. Park a...

It was a breakfast run that brought us into Gutiz and it would have been easy to stay through lunch, making a culinary day of it based on the first blush. Billed as French/Latin fusion, Gutiz delivered on all counts. The traditional "tortilla" is...
