A nice day in Taos. We had breakfast at El Taseno, did laundry - well, Sandra did laundry while Bill researched ideas for the Chase - and went downtown. Here's the Plaza at Taos and Sandra in front of the Padre Jose Martinez statue.
We browsed the shops that surround the Plaza, bought a T-Shirt at the I Love Taos shop, ate at La Cueva, and toured the Kit Carson House Museum. This is a very interesting museum, in a house where Carson lived with his wife Josefa Jaramillo and raised his many children. The house is owned & operated by a Masonic Lodge, since Carson was a founder of the first lodge in Taos.
Our last stop in town was one of our favorite bookstores, Moby Dickens. The two cats work hard to bring in customers and patrol the store at night.
With time left in the day, we decided to explore, with a trip up the mountain to Taos Ski Valley. On the way up the mountain next to a vigorous creek, we noticed several beaver dams.
Afterward, we took a side road to Arroyo Hondo, then back to the Lodge. Dinner was back at El Taoseno, and now we'll sit by the pool with a couple of local beers and try to figure out some clues. 60 miles today, more of the same tomorrow.
