    Heading to Taos Jeepless

    It’s been one of my wife’s dreams to travel to Taos and in June we are going head there for her birthday, so spending a couple days in a Jeep each way to drive there or me picking her up at the other end isn’t an option. We’re staying at El Monte Sagrado north of town and I’ll be renting a Jeep to run around in. I’ve never been and hate tourist traps. What’s worth seeing and doing around there? We both love the outdoors so hiking and traveling thru the mountains is high on our list!

    We stayed in Taos in a little Casita. Loved it. Sunsets are absolutely beautiful!

    You gotta check out the Taos Gorge Bridge, maybe take the Enchanted Circle. Definitely travel north a little bit and check out Red River.

    Check out the Valle Vidal wilderness just north of Taos. Great hiking and scenery. Bring a good camera. The drive south out of Taos takes you through a picturesque canyon. Pack a lunch, plenty of places to sit and commune with nature in great southwest style. If you’re feeling adventurous take a rafting tour. With all the snow we got this year, I’d bet the Taos river will be flowing good.

    Go downhill mountain biking at Angel Fire, they have a great rental program with a class and a guide if needed

    Definitely! There aren’t many tourist traps in this area, lots of art galleries, good restaurants, and land is basically high desert that moves into mountains. Santa Fe is about 70 miles south of Taos and totally worth the drive. That’s where I’m at. Valle Vidal is a very nice area, you have to pay to enter and it’s a huge mountainous area about 70 miles north of Taos. June is a great time to visit New Mexico. Your gonna love the weather.

    Thank you! Great information. We are going to spend at least a day maybe two seeing Santa Fe. The art is one of the biggest reasons she wants to go. That and the scenery.

    Yeah, the weather for June looked perfect, that’s why we were shooting for that month to make the run.

    Thanks again!

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
