a postcard from New Mexico...

Though we are not entirely done with Colorado...
we are spending some time in northeastern New Mexico today.

We dropped from the Colorado Rockies to the plains of New Mexico...
then climbed back up the hills to the resort town of Taos...
where we are spending the night.

English, Spanish, and Tewa—a Native American language—are spoken here.
But the universal language in Taos is art.

And the weather?
It's raining!


  1. WONDERFUL! You are on a great adventure! You get a bonus with the art AND rain! I am loving your postcards!

  2. Taos - a name from a movie or a book - what a grand trip you're having. I hope you brought your good old BC umbrella!

  3. I've never been to Santa Fe or Taos and it is a goal. They are considered to be wonderful resort areas and beautiful in the way only the mountainous west can be.

  4. I can't wait to see more of your photos when you get back, Judy! My son and daughter-in-law like Taos a lot and have vacationed there a few times.

  5. Raining? Does New Mexico get those downpours in July like Arizona does? I don't know, but I hope the sun comes out soon so you can continue on your outdoor adventures just as easily as your indoor ones.

  6. Well the photos are beautiful!! Never been to NM, but it looks lovely! Wow you two are putting on some miles!!

    Happy Trails!

  7. You are really having a trip of a lifetime! What a special time...what a blessing!

  8. What a wonderful trip you're having - and thanks for all the postcards.
    Rain - none here, although we could use a good downpour for the forest fires. But I'm not complaining about the lovely sunshine.

  9. Exercise and education during vacation are a great combo. Your postcards are so much fun for me. Our son-in-law was just in N.M with a group of youth and we found it so interesting to hear about the area. Now you share pictures...thank you.

  10. Oh we have marine air this morning. . .it looks more like September than July. Your postcard is picture perfect.

  11. It's sunny and warm from my end of things. It looks like you have had one amazing trip. Keep singing in the rain.
