Paula and George on Vacation Part X

Lydia joined us on our last day. We drove out to the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge, which is like a mini Grand Canyon.

I could not resist this sign in the ladies room. It made me think of my Mom and her red pen.

Earth Ship, sustainable buildings using green building designs constructed from cans, botles and tires with mud and cement holding it all together. All solar. Built into the ground.. Electricity comes from the sun and wind; water comes from rain and snow melt; sewage is treated on site in botanical planters; heating and cooling is from the sun and earth. There are about 60 houses in this area.

Lydia thought we would like Arroyo Seco(means dry gulch) located at the base of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. She was right.

We made our way back into Taos where we had dinner at Bent Street Cafe and Deli and dessert at the Dragonfly before taking Lydia back home.

Thanks Lydia. Enjoy your new life. A storm was forming in the mountains, which gave us a rainbow we could watch while we took one last drive through some neighborhoods before returning to the hotel. If you look carefully in the third picture, you can see that a double rainbow was forming.

Aaaah. This is the place for me. This is the place I need to return to someday.
