Trip Report: Thanksgiving at Taos

Winter is back, and we’re all very thankful.

And those of us who were up at Taos for Thanksgiving and the opening weekend are supremely thankful.

Nobody around here can remember a better opening day, and more snow is on the way.

If you’ve been to Taos before, you know that when it’s good here, it’s great.

And if you’ve never been here, ’tis the season.

Take a look, click on images to enlarge, and decide for yourself.
