Taos, New Mexico
Member Reviews (2)
in the north-central region of New Mexico in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains close to Taos Pueblo, the Native American village and tribe from which it takes its name, which means "place of red willows" in Taos. The Taos valley, Rio Grande and Taos mountains provide many opportunities for recreation, such as fly fishing, horse back riding, golfing, hot air ballooning, llama trekking, rafting, mountain biking and more. In the winter many people come to Taos to ski. Settled first by artists, it still retains its artistic flavor. In this small town, there are three art museums, several performing arts venues. Twenty miles northwest is the D. H. Lawrence Ranch, where it's believed the author's ashes are buried.
