Turkey Trot Trip To Taos

The 1st annual Turkey Trot Trip is on....provided the weather cooperates. Right now it's looking like what snow there is will move into the Denver area tonight and tomorrow. By the time we leave the roads should be clear. Oh, it will be cold but that is manageable. Taos will definitely be a cool place in more ways than one!

The picture above is one of the classic neon signs for the Taos Inn, a great old bar and hotel. I took this picture a couple of years ago on another trip to Taos. Not only is Taos an "artsy" town with lots of galleries but the place just reeks with history. The Taos Pueblo is a native American historic site that has been inhabited continuously for over 1000 years. One of my favorite Colorado historical figures, Charles Bent, of Bent's Fort fame lived and unfortunately died in Taos during the Taos Revolt of 1848. Kit Carson, Uncle Dick Wooten, Tom Tobin and a host of other early mountain men left their mark on Taos as well. What's not to like about this place?

The Circle, minus The Bride, will leave the Denver area sometime Friday morning and return on Sunday. The campground we are staying at has wifi so check back for more information.

Thanks for visiting.
