In Part 6, we planned out all of the sights and activities we are going to do during our two days in Taos. While over there I am personally looking quite forward to going to the Pueblo and I also can't wait for us to get off some stunning sunset shots at the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge!
Leaving Taos, and heading over to Santa Fe we'll be stopping at the Historic El Santuario de Chimayo. Which again, should provide us with some extra lovely photo opps. After touring the Holy Shrine, we'll try out some local fare for lunch. While searching the web today Elisa found a very yummy sounding south western restaurant whose menu actually seems as though it will fit the needs of all our picky eating crew (myself included)!
Continuing our drive south to Santa Fe, we'll make one more stop; for a picture break at the Saints and Sinners Sign. Then straight to our next rental house, which is suppose to be in a great neighborhood and within walking distance to Beautiful Santa Fe Plaza. Once we're all checked in, we plan on making a nice Pasta dinner for the family. And being Italian we know it'll be good, and that we'll all be very happy!
The next day our plans consist of seeing the picturesque Nambe Falls, and searching for big ol' bisons, before heading to town and checking out Kakawa Chocolatier - Kakawa has been named one of the TOP 10 most luxurious places in the WORLD to drink hot chocolate! I do believe that we were both drooling all over our computers staring at the goodies available from this place!!!
Come along for the ride or plan your own with hints and tips from ours:
Day 5 Santa Fe
a)Chimayo - we are preparing to be in Awe!
b)Lunch near Chimayo
c)Saints and Sinners Sign - where the Red Light is always on! Pictures only my friends. Pictures only.
Day 6: Santa Fe
a)Nambe Falls & Bison, this is going to be a super easy 1/4 mile hike to the falls and then an around the loop trail to seek out some bison! With all of us being big animal lovers; I'm guessing that the kids will each get a kick out of this one!
b)Old Town, Santa Fe Plaza - for some sightseeing, shopping and eating.
Day 7: Santa Fe to Albuquerque
a)Loretto Chapel - A must see! Maybe the kids can figure out the two mysteries that surround the spiral staircase in the Loretto Chapel?!
b)Brontosaurus Family (fun and quirky photo op) the kiddos should get a hoot out of this stop!
c)Drive to Albuquerque
Even though we are all gonna be together in less than one months time in NY, we are all looking so forward to this Cousins New Mexico Road Trip! It's super exciting to think about our upcoming shared time together in October!
