driving

Taos today, and let me tell you we almost made a big mistake. We were on the 'main' road when we encounterd 'police activity' that meant we had to sit in the car on the road for an hour. Impatient tourists like we are we decided to take the 'other road'. We drove back for 20 minutes and into the mountains for an hour as the 'highway' got more and more narrow. When the horse track we were driving on was covered in frozen and packed snow it seemed like we better turn back and check on that 'police incident' and probably take the 'big' road. Trust me I will post photos in january when we get back. Anyway we made it to Taos and it is like a winter-wonder-land. We are staying at (the wifi says sungod) I forgot its sun god something and its nice and we already used the hot tub (under the stars and in the snow)....

All that way, and you get snow? Bummer! Hey- The dried chiles sound great! Ristras around here are usually lacquered for decorations, because you're right- too wet to keep for long!

ahh, nothing like a hot tub in the winter! Glad you found your way back to the big road :)

It snows in New Mexico? For some reason I thought it would be like CA weather.

that sounds much better than being held up in the subway due to police activity in the first car.
