The High Road to Taos

Drive from Santa Fe to Taos – take the High Road one way, through the snow- and sage-covered mountains, unexpected forests, and endless plateaus

Stop along the way at Santuario de Chimayo, a 19th century church with a patch of healing earth

When in Taos, eat at La Cueva Cafe before getting into the downtown. We walked around Taos Plaza and Bent Street, spending time at op. cit. books

We took the Low Road back, hugging the Rio Grande. A sliver of a moon hung in the sky as the desert expanse bloomed into inky darkness

Ghost Ranch

︎ ︎

The drive to Ghost Ranch is a study in delicate pinks and blues shading the snow on brilliant red land

Ghost Ranch itself has small anthropological and paleontological museums, and hiking trails

Stop by Abiquiu Lake on the way back – I was there at golden hour, standing alone in furiously cold winds, looking down over the pastel water
