A Day Trip to Taos, New Mexico

I had two work assignments in Taos so it seemed like a good excuse for a family road trip.  Taos is a small community in the mountains of New Mexico.  It is a touristy little place, but big enough for  a Wal-Mart and an Albertsons Supermarket.  It was about 120 miles from our campground, with a lot of the highway going along the Rio Grande River.  Here are pictures of the river, including some rafters:

Once we got into town, we drove around a little to explore.   Rosie was in the mood for a Deli sandwich so we used our GPS to find the Bent Street Deli.  Rosie had a delicious Rueben sandwich (hold the 1000 Island) and I had a BBQ Chicken sandwich.  Tortilla chips with salsa and guacamole rounded out the meal, washed down with some really good ice tea.  After lunch we  walked around and took some pictures:

Taos is definitely worth the trip.  We had camped here several years ago at one of several campgrounds in the area.  I think there is a KOA here somewhere, if that is your style.  There are a couple of Native American casinos in town and a historic area to visit; plus shopping until you drop.  Overall a very pleasant day.

Thanks for stopping by.
