John Dunn Bridge is a 4 mile drive from our home located in Arroyo Hondo, New Mexico in north central New Mexico. It crosses the Rio Grande near the confluence of the Rio Hondo. It was built in 1908 by John Dunn who transported travelers and mail into Taos and housed travelers overnight at his hotel near the bridge. The short-cut to drive there involves a four wheel or all wheel drive, since the road has ruts. Out our driveway, turn right, then a hard right north, at the fork take the right leg and go about 2 miles, then left down a steep but wide and safe switchback for 2 miles down to the John Dunn Bridge.

The Earthship community launched by Mike Reynolds is a must see. About 12 miles from our home found easily with GPS. An Earthship is a type of passive solar house that is made of both natural and upcycled materials (such as earth-packed tires). Earthships can be completely off-grid or partially off-grid. Earthships can be built in any part of the world, in any climate (with a permit) and still provide electricity, potable water, contained sewage treatment and sustainable food production. Earthships are thermal mass homes first, passive solar homes second. Whatever temperature goes into an Earthship, it will hold… and since it is also a Passive Solar House, it is also very tight and interacts only with the sun and the earth for heating and cooling, providing stable comfort year round in any climate.

The High Road to Taos Scenic Byway takes the traveler through an authentic remnant of Old Spain, still evident in the religion, architecture, topography, history, and people along the route. The byway travels through Chimayo, a community known the beautiful Santuario de Chimayo and the El Posito, a hole in the floor of a side chapel filled with healing earth. Along N.M. 76, the byway follows through the creased and crinkled badlands, polka-dotted with scrubby pinon and juniper, with the Jemez Mountains enormous on the horizon. High Road to Taos Scenic Byway Cruise on through the villages of Talpa and Ranchos de Taos & end the trip at the Saint Francis Plaza in Ranchos de Taos? Saint Francis welcomes you, his bronze arms lifted toward heaven, and the San Francisco de Asis Church was made famous by the many artists and photographers who have tried to capture the essence of its massive adobe walls, glistening with straw. This is a MUST DO trip whether from Taos south to Santa Fe, or from Santa Fe up to Taos!

Taos Plaza is the Heart of Taos. This is the center of the Taos Historic District where locals gather for Taos Plaza Live concerts, May through October and visitors enjoy the shops and galleries that surround the Plaza all year long. The Farmers Market is open April thru October every Saturday! The original Spanish settlement of scattered farms evolved in Taos Valley about 1615. But in 1680, the settlers were driven out by the Pueblo Revolt. Spanish authority was not reestablished until 1696 with the reconquest by Don Diego de Vargas. The area was firmly resettled by 1710. In 1796 the Don Fernando de Taos Land Grant was given to 63 families by the King of Spain. This resulted in the Map of Taos Plaza establishment of the current Taos Plaza and surrounding community. Don Fernando de Taos became the most important settlement in the area outside of the ancient San Geronimo de Taos Pueblo two miles to the north. Homes were built in large quadrangles, thus offering a fortress-like structure. Hostile raiding Indians from outside the Taos area were thwarted in their attempts to enter the village. Sentries stationed at the corners of the fortified village kept vigil day and night. A huge gate offered the only means of entry and exit to and from the Plaza. The enclosure served as a refuge for livestock at night, and merchants displayed their wares there during trade fairs. Over the years, there were many fires within the Plaza and many buildings were lost and rebuilt. Because the buildings were contiguous, a fire in one usually spread to others. The character of the present structures around the Plaza dates from the 1930s. Today the current Plaza, with its many shops and galleries, is a natural gathering place for locals and visitors alike

Our Favorite Chocolate place! Chokola is a small-batch, organically crafted bean-to-bar chocolate maker located in Taos, New Mexico. Almost two decades ago, in 2003, owners of Chokola Deborah Vincent and Javier Abad met in Venezuela. This meeting marked the beginning of a beautiful journey based on the foundation of a mutual passion for chocolate. Together, they began to develop their skills and crafts in the art of chocolate-making, opening a successful chocolate business in Merida Venezuela, where they met. Then with a young family, they moved to Taos New Mexico to live with Taos folk singer and social activist Jenny Vincent, grandmother of Deborah Vincent. In 2015, Deborah and Javi took a trip to Caracas Venezuela to meet and learn from renowned chocolate makers Chloe Doutre-Roussel and Maria Fernanda Di Giacobbe. Six months later, Debi Vincent and Javier Abad opened Chokola. Together, they made a commitment to provide the Taos community with high quality, award winning chocolate.

City/town information
The Town of Taos is 20 minutes from our home, featuring dozens of art galleries, excellent restaurants and coffee shops. Long one of America’s foremost, bona fide Art Colonies, Taos is also home to a world-class ski resort (Taos Ski Valley), a World Heritage Site (Taos Pueblo), one of the most photographed and iconic churches (St. Francisco de Asis), and a majestic landscape encompassing the Rocky Mountains and the Rio Grande Gorge (and its eponymous bridge). Drawn by clean air and mythical light, visitors come to New Mexico's Soul of the Southwest to experience rich spiritual traditions, fine art, distinctive cuisine, a thriving music scene and of course, the raw, natural beauty of the landscape. Discover your place faraway from the everyday in Taos, New Mexico. The Art Colony: Back in 1898, when artists Ernest Blumenschein and Bert Phillips’s wagon broke down as they were traveling through, it was Blumenschein who lost the coin toss and headed into Taos to get the wagon wheel repaired. He noticed, “The sky above was clear, clean blue with sharp-moving clouds. The color, the reflective character of the landscape, the drama of the vast spaces, the superb beauty and severity of the hills, stirred me deeply.” He convinced Phillips to end the trip here. They launched an art colony that thrives to this day, with important artists such as Joseph Henry Sharp, E. Irving Couse, and Oscar E. Berninghaus paving the way for notables like Walt Gonske, Chris Morel, Ray Vinella, Miguel Martinez, and Thom Wheeler. You’ll find important works from the past at Robert L. Parsons Fine Art
