The first half of our drive from Taos today was a drive in the valley along the Rio Grande River. We enjoyed seeing a couple of rafting groups. The water is low this late in the season and the ride looked tame. It was beautiful sunny weather, but almost 20 degrees warmer (92) than what’s normal for this time of the year.
Santa Fe, founded by Spanish colonists in 1610, is one of the most visited cities in the U.S., renowned for its art galleries and adobe buildings. Just like Taos, buildings over two stories just don’t seem to exist. Santa Fe has an appealing mix of Hispanic, Native and Anglo-American cultures.
There are a couple of interesting groups here in the RV Park. One is called “RVing Women - Rocky Mountain Chapter”. The name seems to indicate “ladies only”. They were having a dinner at the covered pavilion. The other group was 25 to 30 Class “C” Motor Homes all parked in a row. We found out they were “rentals” and were a group of Dutch tourists who flew into the U.S. and were a part of a travel group or caravan as they are sometimes called.
