Day 10: Across New Mexico

We live an enchanted life. I don't know if you know that, but we do.

Today was proof of that very truth.

We left from two magical days at Ojo Caliente to head to Kat and Zach's place... which was an organic farm in the middle of nowhere. After turning off the highway, we drove for about 25 minutes on washes, dirt roads, and riverbeds. Wow. I cannot believe we made it.

We finally arrived and walked with our new friends and they made a wonderful lunch for us. What a beautiful place. Stories to tell when we're in your area.

Some photos? Here you go.

Kat and her tomatoes.

Holly and her fresh flowers.


Reisling Grapes.

The farm road.

Happy neo-farmers.

We had to leave their place in the late afternoon as to miss the coming rain. We headed up to Taos for dinner and drove through some of the most beautiful parts of the US.

I always wondered how New Mexico had earned the title "Land of Enchantment". I mean honestly.

But I rediscovered NM this time around. It is truly one of the most beautiful places we have in this just requires some traveling north of the interstate on some small roads.
