Great American Road Trip-Day 3 Review
Yesterday we spent all day here in beautiful Taos, New Mexico. When we got here Friday night, we arrived with no real plan, no hotel reservations, starving, and a bit cranky from the driving. In less than an hour after arriving, we had found the most amazing hotel, The Inn on La Loma Plaza and a great place for dinner, Joseph's Table. We actually sat in a little private booth just like the one on the front page of the Joseph's Table website and it was so cool!
I can't say enough good things about our hotel . It's more like a bed and breakfast, and each room has its own personality. We are in a room that looks like a log cabin, and has a real wood-burning fireplace and an outdoor patio (which is covered with snow and too cold to use!). We like it here so much we decided to stay for a second night and get on the road again in the morning! The only downside to Taos is that I've had zero phone service since we've been here. I don't think it will be much better tomorrow, so email me if you need me!
Today we didn't do a lot of driving, but we certainly did do some shooting. It was a bit of a more challenging day because of the snowy clouds and overcast skies, it was harder to find things that really stood out, but I think that we both found a few. Click on Becker's Blog for his take on yesterday!
Today, I'm also introducing new, bigger, and better than ever large photos on my site! Becker's were looking so big and delicious I had to have big photos too, so here they are.
A view of Taos:
The first thing we did was check out the Pueblo. There are a lot of people living at the Pueblo who are very friendly and the doors are open. Here's some shots from there:
The Pueblo itself:
The Pueblo Church:
After the Pueblo, we just drove around town for a little while, looking for cool stuff to shoot. We came across the most awesome pink truck ever. How cool is this!
We also found a great mural and took some shots of it and of us:
My cousin Steven is a chef in Boston (I believe that in the Boston area he is known as "Chef Nookie"), and he's been following along with our trip. He asked me to pick him up some chilis from here, and lo and behold, there was a whole chili store!
More stuff from the outskirts of town:
It snowed this afternoon! I miss the snow from my East Coast days, and I absolutely love this shot Becker grabbed of me:
Tomorrow is going to be great. We're headed somewhere very interesting, and although we've heard it's under quite a bit of snow right now, we're going to make the trek anyway!
