We made a very short move a couple days ago just 1.4 miles down the road to the Arroyo Hondo campground. We scoped it out over the weekend when some tenters were camped there, and saw that the two prime sites would fit an RV. There are only 5 sites, no water or electric, but there is a vault toilet and a dumpster.
Looking through our front windshield. What more do you need with a view like this?
It definitely ranks up there as one of the prettiest sites we’ve ever had. And for only $2.50/night! We were the only ones here the first night, but the other three sites filled by dark last evening. There’s no serious whitewater on this part of the Rio Grande, but there is river rafting and kayaking.
This is a great area for hiking, there being a nice trail right from the campgrounds, and several others a few miles down the road. We also did a hike at the Rio Grande Gorge Visitor Center, and one at the Taos Valley Overlook. Some trail views.
We’ve been to Taos a couple times, typical touristy town with a little plaza surrounded by all the requisite shops and restaurants, and a very bad laundromat.
Did have an excellent vegetarian green chili burrito and some of the best beer we’ve had in a long time at Eske’s Brewpub. You know it’s a true microbrewery when they write the name of the beer on the label with a Sharpie.
Plan to be here a couple more days since Debbie’s antenna hasn’t arrived yet, but we’re in no hurry to leave this peaceful spot.
