Our artistic journey continues now on up to Taos. After leaving Santa Fe early in the morning, we aimed the Crosstrek north. Knowing we had plenty of time to get to Taos, we took a detour to Abiquiu and Ghost Ranch, which occupy a beautiful corner of New Mexico along the Rio Chama.

After Abiquiu, we headed on to Taos. As we followed the Rio Grande up the gorge past Pilar, we could see the snow squalls building. By the time we got to Taos, curtains of falling snow obscured the peaks.
