Get Outdoors

Go fish or take a hike!

Autumn’s chill is in the early morning air, even though the Dog Days of Summer are here.

We’ll have a glorious and warm month or two ahead no doubt – Fall is our Golden Hour – but the seasons change fast up here in the High Desert. But for now, let’s bask in these last summer days, before school starts, the work load increases

and boot weather is upon us!

These photographs by Bill Curry remind us of the beauty right on our doorstep.

This weekend the town will be filled with groovy hipster revelers arriving for the Taos Vortex – Meow Wolf’s 2nd annual extravaganza in Kit Carson Park. It’ll be loads of fun – great music, sunshine (but be prepared for rain if you plan to attend), good food – sweet souvenirs and trippy memories to boot.

If you don’t plan on going to the park or town this weekend, there’s no better time to head for the hills!

It’s cooler up there, and oh so beautiful right now, at summer’s end.

Fishing, hiking, biking, horseback riding and rafting are all available to us here, and this weekend is as great a time as any to take advantage of one or two.

Stay safe and dry. Pack a windbreaker, sunscreen and water, and enjoy the beauty and serenity only Nature gifts us with.
