One of my favorite places in the world is Taos, New Mexico. It’s not too far from Denver (about a 5 hour drive), but it has such a sense of place that you feel like you’ve been transported to a whole different world. I love the high, dry valley and mountain views, the Pueblo style architecture, and the laid back, friendly people.

We crammed a lot of fun into just a couple of days: We visited The Harwood Museum of Art and saw a fascinating exhibit of mid-century abstract expressionism by American painter Richard Diebenkorn. We also saw the national water media exhibit hosted at the Millicent Rogers Museum.

The Adobe Bar at the Taos Inn had a great trio playing vintage country western and honkey tonk music that was perfect with their fantastic margaritas! This was our first stay at the Casa Benavides Inn, a bed and breakfast just east of the town plaza. Very charming, with REAL Southwestern style, not that howling coyote crap. And the food was fabulous.

Enjoy the photo tour!
