Sisters’ get away – the drive to Taos

Last weekend my two sisters, Cynthia and Molly, and I took a girls’ trip to Taos, NM.  Cynthia’s boss, Elaine, has a condo on the slopes in the ski valley and graciously let us use it.  It was great.  We had a blast (except for Cynthia twisting her ankle)! 

Our first stop was in Endee, NM.  Just a wide spot on the road but they have a new truck stop, Russell’s, that has a big showroom for some classic cars.  I need to drag Ross back there.  He will love it.

The colors were at the end of the changes but golden!  And the views were awesome.

We found a really cool old cemetery.  I love old cemeteries.  So much history there.10-22-10 to Taos 13Don’t you love Molly’s yoga pose?10-22-10 to Taos 17 10-22-10 to Taos 19Interesting on this stone that the black is in the heart carved on the back.10-22-10 to Taos 32 10-22-10 to Taos 20 10-22-10 to Taos 23 10-22-10 to Taos 24 Hammerhead for a grave marker.  10-22-10 to Taos 2510-22-10 to Taos 27 10-22-10 to Taos 28 10-22-10 to Taos 31 Anyway, we saw elk, wild turkey, and a tarantula.  No deer.  Oh, and lots of antelope. 10-22-10 to Taos 4210-22-10 to Taos 51But it was the colors that were just awesome!!!10-22-10 to Taos 3310-22-10 to Taos 3410-22-10 to Taos 3810-22-10 to Taos 3910-22-10 to Taos 4010-22-10 to Taos 4510-22-10 to Taos 4710-22-10 to Taos 50 The dirt road just added to the beauty.10-22-10 to Taos 5210-22-10 to Taos 5310-22-10 to Taos 54
