Thursday, November 7, 2019:  There is music everywhere in New Mexico.
 
The landscape is dotted with homes near hills.
 
 
The Kit Carson Home and Museum in Taos, NM.  Carson (1809-1868) was a frontiersman, mountain man, fur trapper, wilderness guide, Indian agent and U.S. Army officer.  He was portrayed, by writers, as a living legend.  The drawing on the left came from a book, done by an artist who never met Carson.  The painting on the right shows him in his later years.  Carson died at age 59.
 
 
Mark and Paula came across the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge, about ten miles from Taos, MN. 
 
 
Paula was a bit nervous on the bridge.  She is fine 120 feet underwater, but not 600 feet above the Rio Grande River. 
 
 
Yes, it is a long ways down with the river below.
 
 
Not far from the bridge, they spotted an Earthship along New Mexico Highway 64.  These off-the-grid homes are scattered across the landscape.
 
 
New Mexico has a lot of wide-open terrain.
 
 
The Gorge Bridge, as seen from 25,000 feet, as Mark and Paula flew back to Gilbert Lodge the next day.  

Quote of the day:    New Mexico was a fun place to visit.   Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
