                      The town of Taos is a beautifully historical old town that offers art galleries, great food, live music, and the native Taos Pueblo Indians (inhabited since 1200 A. D. ) . There is great skiing in the Southern Rocky Mountains at Taos Ski Valley, Red River, and Angel Fire. White water rafting in the Rio Grande Gorge from April thru June is a must and you can go horseback riding, mountain biking, hot air ballooning, camping, and fishing nearly year around. If you love to play golf, you will enjoy playing Taos Country Club - a desert styled course open to the public. Taos is located only an hour North from Santa Fe - a great day trip. Taos weather is spectacular with low humidity and cool nights. The house altitude is approximately 7, 000 ft. The home is 12 minutes from the Taos ski area and the town of Taos and 2 minutes from the town of Arroyo Seco. Whether by car or motorcycle, drive the Enchanted Circle for inspirational views, photos, and unique shopping experiences.

                      Other Activities: motorcycling, snowmobiliing, art galleries
