The High Road to Taos


I'm sharing this map of the high road to Taos from Santa Fe--
we have made many trips to Taos, usually in the fall to attend
Taos Wool Market--we've stopped along the road to visit
several of the weavers along the way--there are side trips to
take--Chimayo is a favorite stop for lunch.  We can visit
many Pueblos.
Out of Santa Fe, we drive past Santa Fe Opera!  OMgosh,
what a view from this location!
should we take trip up to Ghost Ranch Living Museum?
or stop to see Georgia O'Keeffe's House?


We are staying at lovely Palacio de Marquesa where each of the eight rooms is dedicated
to a remarkable women of Taos.  Our room was the Socialite I named for Millicent Rogers.
A museum in her name is outside of Taos and where one can find the most marvelous
collection of Navajo weavings and other arts.
Millicent loved the intricate detailing of Native American jewelry and soon became
a collector and an advocate of American Indian Rights.
The peace and quiet of the neighborhood with the surrounding grounds gives us an
enjoyable stay--not to mention breakfast that is delivered to our room!
