Tuesday, April 19, 2001: We set off on Tuesday morning for a drive along New Mexico's "High Road", which runs northeast from Sante Fe, up through the Sangre de Cristo Mountains to Taos. Once we surrendered to the fact that the drive was going to take much longer than we originally anticipated, it was a very relaxing day, with some truly breathtaking scenery.
We stopped in the Nambe Pueblo to take what the guide book described as a "short hike" to Nambe Falls. The trail up the side of the mountain, which had no guardrails whatsoever, turned out to be downright treacherous in spots. This is not something we would recommend doing with a two-year-old! The falls were very pretty though, and the water in the stream and nearby lake was beautifully clear.
