Time in Taos, adding Angel Fire

Santa Fe to Taos

We began July with a cross country trip, cavaliers on Board, first stop Birmingham AL. The visit with an old friend included an evening in her garden!

On to Dallas, and I have nothing to say about that stop, except the La Quinta across from the Four Seasons was one of the best we stayed with our pets along. Would’ve liked to stay at the Four Seasons! It irks me that my two perfectly clean and coiffed dogs would cost so much extra just to sleep in their own comfy dog beds. I am sure they are cleaner and better behaved than the typical 3 year old, and the kids are free!

Taos after several years, feels like a second home. and now son and his wife have added land in Angel Fire, so that is a new destination. Their dogs love it, especially the lake, but it much too wild and rural for the likes of the cavs.

We took a packed lunch to Angel Fire, watched the dogs swim in the lake, observed wildflowers everywhere, even at 10,000 feet, and tried to identify the birds from their song. What an amazing afternoon to just be in the mountains. Peaceful beyond words.

From our window in the newly refurbished casita, the sunsets blaze, the cows and horses graze, and we feel so happy to be in the Land of Enchantment.

Our morning walks through this beautiful countryside start each of our days with a serenity that is hard to find anywhere else.

  1. Looks like you had a nice trip. It isn’t easy to travel with animals. I drive cross country with a cat.


  2. I’m sure a cat is not as willing to travel in a car for three days as a dog, but at least you dont have to stop to walk it!
