The High Road to Taos

Las Trampas, NM

Even if you start from the town of Taos, the scenic byway is called The High Road to Taos. Following President Obama’s advice, we took the high road, and enjoyed, as we climbed up and down the arroyos, through Las Trampas, Ojo Sarco, Chimayó and ending up in Santa Fe, where we ate brunch at Cafe Pasqual’s. We wandered up Canyon Road to check out the art galleries and finished with the world’s best chocolate ice cream at Kakawa Chocolate House.
