We decided to make the scenic 2-hour drive to Northern New Mexico to a little ski town called Taos. You wouldn't believe this place was actually in New Mexico with all the greenery! It really was a picturesque little town- not as ritzy as Park City, but with a very homey feeling.
I'm a huge B&B fan, so when we saw this little place, we had to stop and check it out. They had all sorts of farm animals and Oliver loved the goats.
We drove up to the Taos Ski Resort. Let's just say it leaves much to be desired. To make the trip worth it, Oliver and Christian stopped at this pretty stream and threw rocks while I took a cat nap in the car.
The owner of the B&B recommended this hole-in-the-wall, hippie place for dinner. It was supposed to be good New Mexican food (which is just Mexican food smothered in green chile). Christian made the mistake of ordering his tacos with "no green chile" and I guess this warranted a visit from the chef himself to our table. He all but said that not having green chile was not allowed. Christian relented and actually loved it (We're making progress here, people!).
It was a great and memorable Labor Day!
