FIND THE SOUL OF THE SOUTHWEST

We are all joyously and carefully emerging from our quarantine cocoons and welcoming family, neighbors and visitors back into our communities – perhaps more grateful than ever before for simple pleasures. Inside this website you will discover the best in local dining, lodging and adventure throughout the Enchanted Circle.

Get out there, be safe, and find the soul of the southwest in all that Taos has to offer.

SAGE SCENTED AIR

After summer’s “walking rain,” or the startling Taos blue skies year round, sage scented air calls us all to revel here in the unbelievable raw beauty of this land, New Mexico’s soul of the Southwest.

REVEL IN THE RÍO

Running the Río Grande or other Taos rivers can be calming or transfixing, depending on the rapids – but all trips open us to the magic of being on the water, complete with ancient petroglyphs, otters, ducks, eagles and big horn sheep – wild and wonderful.

SOULFUL SKIES

Sunsets get better every minute, whether on mesas, mountains or rivers – watching the sun dip below the horizon is magical beyond measure, turning Taos days into mystical nights.
