Where I stayed
Worldmark by Wyndham, Red River, New Mexico
April had always wanted to see the Taos Pueblo, which was built between 1000 and 1450A.D. So we drove down a dusty road, wind whipping the dirt into the air. The Pueblo is a large collection of low adobe colored buildings connected with dirt roads and numerous scraggly dogs running in packs. The Rio Pueblo River divides the Pueblo, which is the nicest part of the area. The charge is $10 per person and $6 per camera. Inside the walls of the original Pueblo people are living and have little curio shops with the local Indian stuff
Then we headed for Red River, which in the winter is a ski area and summer, people raft, hike and ride horses. We had a lovely condo with Alison and her friend Deborah. It was all very lodge-like with a hot tub and a communal grill. We hunkered down for some power resting, eating and drinking for the next three days. We did manage to hike each day and had a spa afternoon with tinting and dyeing each other’s lashes and brows. We sat on the deck for all our meals and enjoyed the rushing river. It was cool and lovely being in the mountains, very much like the Colorado Rockies. It was a fantastic retreat.
