It’s time to fill prescriptions and do some sightseeing.
My usual rental car choice Enterprise didn’t have any cars available, my fault for not reserving earlier, so I gave Budget a try. At check in, the radar went off when the agent didn’t want to do an inspection with me, said they already had and it was standard procedure to allow the customer to make note of any damage, I did with pictures, which turned out to be a good thing. Not long after I returned the car I get a call wanting to know how I plan to take care of the damage, I told them with the pictures I have on my phone, time and date stamped. That was the last I heard. Don’t mess with old ladies, we have more experience.
Anyway, on to Taos.
The drive up Rt.68 is breathtaking. Even though I was in a car I would not hesitate to bring Matilda up rt.68. i skipped the Gorge, its just not my kind of bridge. This pic is the closest I got.
The square is picturesque and the Alley Cantina located in the oldest house in Taos makes really good Green Chili burgers and home made onion rings.
Which made me late to enter the Taos Pueblo so this is what is looks like from outside. I definatly have reason to go back.
I took another route back to Santa Fe through Carson National Forest and happend upon San Jose de Garcia mission church having some restoration work.
I stayed at the KOA which is about 20 miles from Santa Fe and I used UBER to get and return my rental. This was the first time I had the opportunity to be in Santa Fe for more than and overnight stay and it is a good spot to make a base camp and explore.
