Taos, NM

After Santa Fe, we drove to Taos and staid at the Bella Monta RV park. Kind of exposed on the plain, but a pleasant stay.

First, we hiked to the Rio Grande River Gorge, which was quite spectacular. We hiked the West Rim trail and got some good early morning views.

The next day we drove the Enchanted Circle, and stopped at the very moving Vietnam Memorial. Many years ago I did this on my bicycle, it was much easier in my car.

We also visited the Earth Station, a neighborhood of custom designed fully self reliant homes. No water, no sewer, no electricity, all provided by clever design using nature itself. Very informative, we could use more of this thinking in designing our cities.
