DRIVING TO TAOS

In 1999 we were in the USA and we rented a car, driving through several states including Utah, Nevada, California, Arizona and New Mexico. We had a fantastic time, met some wonderful people and enjoyed amazing scenery and as you can see below great skyscapes, as well.

The 56-mile (90 km) High Road to Taos is a scenic, winding road through the Sangre de Cristo Mountains between Santa Fe and Taos. (The "Low Road" runs through the valleys along the Rio Grande). It winds through high desert, mountains, forests, small farms, and tiny Spanish Land Grant villages and Pueblo Indian villages. Scattered along the way are the galleries and studios of traditional artisans and artists drawn by the natural beauty. It has been recognised by the state of New Mexico as an official Scenic Byway.
