After our visits to the national parks, we headed on to New Mexico. One of the main ideas of our trip was to get to New Mexico, which was one of the states that Dave and I had not been to. It was number 48 for me and 49 for him! Our first steps into the state were actually at the Four Points Monument, which is a place I had wanted to go since I was 6 years old. The photos didn’t come out wonderfully, but I sat in four states at once!
The area around the spot where the four states touch is surrounded by shops and each state has a marker.
We stayed in Taos, New Mexico and the next morning we visited the Taos Pueblo. The pueblos are considered to be one of the oldest continuously inhabited communities in the United States and this site is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We walked around the area on a tour and learned about the site.
This is the north-side Pueblo, which is said to be one of the most photographed and painted buildings in North America. It is the largest multistoried Pueblo structure still existing.
This is a stream that flows through the site.
After the Pueblo, we visited the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge, which crosses the Rio Grande River.
I loved this bus parked nearby!
Next we walked around a bit in Taos, which is a pretty cute little town.
While we were headed to our next stop, we passed this motel. Dave and I are D and D, so I had to stop and take a photo!
