Taos, NM

MONDAY MAY 16TH

  • Santuario de Chimayo: well known for its holy dirt, there were many crutches left behind as proof of the dirt’s healing powers
  • Michael’s Kitchen: Huevos Rancheros and pecan pancakes…yumm
  • Taos Pueblo: the pueblo’s have been there over 1,000 years–the more recent buildings the last 500 years; it was impressive to see Native Americans preserving their language and culture, even if it was a little touristy
  • Taos Plaza: city square with tons of art galleries; we got some pottery and jewelry
  • Rio Grande Gorge Bridge: a terrifying walk and even worse look down
  • Rancho de Chimayo: a 2016 James Beard recipient, this restaurant was located in a quaint old house; the food was good, but not as great as we expected
