Time In Taos

It was time to visit Taos, but there was not enough time in Taos.  This was a short introductory visit, and though we’ve been to Santa Fe, N.M. we were not prepared for how much more we would love Taos, N.M..OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The skies were majestic and the mountains monumental.  Even the drive toward our son and his finance’s home grabbed the heart.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I was ready to send for my dogs, throw away all cellular devices and unwind for a long, long time.IMG_4237

I recommend El Monte Sagrado if you want an upscale hotel with all the amenities, but there are many other ways to see Taos and feel the place without all the perks and the cost.

VRBO seems to be a good place to start.

Before I could catch my breath – literally!, we were back in Savannah,IMG_4265

where life could not be more different.  As high and dry as Taos is, Savannah is low and wet.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAEach has it’s charm, but one has my son, his fiancé and their dogs, and that makes all the difference.  We plan to return in Summer and I hope to share more when there is more time to get to know Taos.

    Jayne,
    I’ve only driven through New Mexico. We have heard mixed reviews of Santa Fe. The images you share of Taos appear to be very beautiful. I have to agree, one is always tempted to move closer to family. We have one nearby and one in Austin, for now we’ll stay and hope our Austin son and family continue to visit often!
    What a great place to visit and get out of the humidity of beautiful Savannah this summer.
    xo,
    Karen

    The spectacular beauty of the Southwest is just breathtaking! What a beautiful drive toward your son’s home! I just love to watch the shadows that the clouds cast on the mountains in the desert. They are constantly changing! Hope you will bring us along on your next visit to Taos, Jayne! I’d love to see more… ♡

    Beautiful. That sky and the colors of the adobe really just make you take a deep breath.
    So have you fully unpacked in Georgia or are things still conveniently in boxes?
