Saturday, August 29, 2015 : From Fort Sumner to Taos, NM

 

roadmap us mark 4 5 us A short stretch of Historic Route 66 in Santa Rosa, and a long detour to Albuquerque International Airport to fix a car glitch. Gorgeous scenery between Santa Fe and Taos, beautiful view of the Rio Grande Plateau shortly before arrival.
attractions us mark 3 5 us Nice excursion to Sandia Peak near Albuquerque. Slight disappointment in Santa Fe, more boho than really genuine.
weather us mark 3 5 us Basically fair, except the otherwordly storm that watered us shortly before Santa Fe, which we visited under a badly overcast sky, hence our pictures being poor on light.
hotel us mark 4 5 us The Quality Inn just outside Taos is juste fine. The next day, we won't enjoy brakfast, which looked clearly great !

After the morning car issues, a very dense day, though we had to bypass Albuquerque and its historical downtown district.
  favorite us The two goats who enjoy following tourists at Sandia Peak. Where do they come from ? Where do they go ? The mistery endures.
