Maybe off-roading in Red River, horseback riding in Pilar, floating in a hot air balloon or taking a trek with llamas is more your speed.

The artful. The legendary. TAOS’ MUSEUMS AND HISTORIC HOMES

Taos has no shortage of colorful and influential characters who have made their mark not only on Northern New Mexico but around the world. One such early Taos mover and shaker was Taos Society of Artists member Joseph Henry “J.H.” Sharp, who became known for his paintings of Native Americans. Strikes His Enemy Pretty

(Crow), a model for and good friend of Sharp, gave his hat to the artist. It hung on the wall in Sharp’s Taos studio until Sharp sold this portrait along with the hat to Peter McElvain (the lender’s, Tim McElvain, father), a regular visitor to the studio in the late 1940s. Between 1900 and 1936, Sharp painted Strikes His Enemy Pretty 26 times. He was a member of the agency police and a judge for his people in the late 1890s. Sharp said he was “a fine type, a great man and favorite model.” If you’re an art and history hound, then be sure to explore the Couse-Sharp Historic Site and the other interesting places that helped solidify Taos as an art colony and a major player in frontier trading.

Also known as Kiowa Ranch, this site is situated on 160 pristine acres on Lobo Mountain, about 20 miles north of Taos. Frieda, the wife of the famed author, entrusted the ranch in her will to the University of New Mexico for the purpose of creating a public memorial to her husband. The ranch features buildings once used as respites for other writers and artists such as Georgia O’Keeffe. Still standing is the ponderosa pine tree O’Keeffe painted during her first visit to New Mexico in 1929 (“The Lawrence Tree”). The ranch is also home to the D.H. Lawrence Memorial Chapel and the Dorothy Brett Cabin. The couple owned and lived at the ranch during their visits to Taos in the early 1920s. The ranch is on the National Register of Historic Places and the New Mexico State Register of Cultural Properties.

GOVERNOR BENT HOUSE AND MUSEUM The home of the state’s first American governor — a trapper, trader and mountain man. Charles Bent was appointed governor of New Mexico in 1834 when the state became an American territory. Outside the home on Jan. 19, 1847, during the Mexican War (1846-1848), he was scalped alive and killed by an angry mob protesting the American rule—they dragged his maimed body around town. Many of the Mexican families naturally resented the American conquest of their home, and the Taos Indians had long disliked Bent because of his trade relations with their northern enemies. During the chaos, Bent’s wife, Ignacia, and her first-born daughter Rumalda, and Ignacia’s sister (Kit Carson’s wife, Josefa) dug a hole inside the home as an escape route into the adjoining house. Although partially filled in, the hole remains. This tucked-away house was converted into a quirky museum in 1969. 117 Bent Street, Hours: Daily, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Admission: $3 adults, $.50 children. (575) 758-2376, laplaza.org.

HACIENDA DE LOS MARTINEZ This thick-walled adobe, fortress-like trading post with 21 rooms surrounding two interior courtyards is on the National Register of Historic Places and gives a living history of rugged frontier life. It was constructed in 1804 by Severino Martinez. Their eldest son, Padre Antonio Martinez, battled Bishop Lamy to preserve the Hispanic character of the Catholic Church in the territory. The Martinez Hacienda is one of the few examples of Northern New Mexico style, late Spanish Colonial period “Great Houses” remaining in the American Southwest. Serving as an important trade center and gathering place, the hacienda was the final terminus for the Camino Real, which connected Northern New Mexico to Mexico City. It was also the headquarters for an extensive ranching and farming operation.

THE HARWOOD MUSEUM OF ART The Harwood Museum of Art showcases a permanent collection of more than 4,700 works and an archive of 17,000 photographs from the 19th century onward. In the early part of the 20th century, many artists were drawn to the Taos area to pursue

a new, truly American art devoid of industrial influence, inspired instead by New Mexico’s landscape and light, and the traditional Native American and Hispanic cultures of the region. One of the museum’s most-prized assets is its Agnes Martin Gallery. The Harwood Museum collection brings to the public a unique record of this artistic convergence from its beginnings to the present day. 238 Ledoux Street. Hours: Wed.-Fri., 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; Sat.-Sun., noon-5 p.m. Closed Monday and Tuesday. Admission: $10 per adult; $8 for seniors; $8 per student; free admission to youth (18 and under), free admission to UNM students and faculty; free admission to members of the Harwood Museum of Art Alliance; free admission to Taos County residents on Sunday.

Taos’ oldest museum is the home of the controversial Christopher “Kit” Carson. The Kit Carson Home and Museum, still standing in its original footprint on Kit Carson Road in Taos, was built circa 1825. Utilizing a History Channel video about the legendary frontiersman, trapper, soldier and scout is a great way to set the stage to view the three-room museum of period displays and some actual Carson items.

THE MABEL DODGE LUHAN HOUSE Declared a National Historic Landmark in 1991, the Mabel Dodge Luhan House is more than a historical place; it is a living, breathing haven for all creative types. Inspiration is everywhere, from memories of famous guests like Willa Cather, Ansel Adams, Georgia O’Keeffe and Thornton Wilder, to the soothing sounds of the acequia that runs through the property under cottonwood trees. Workshops and educational conferences take place year-round, and the property lives up to its reputation as a hotbed of visual and literary arts. More an active learning center than a museum, people can take a self-guided tour during which they can learn about the history of the property and its impact on Taos’ literary and artistic life. 240 Morada Lane.

The museum was established as a memorial to Millicent Rogers, whose inspiration, patronage and collections form the cores of its holdings. As the granddaughter of Henry Huttleston Rogers, one of the founders of the Standard Oil Company, she entertained American industrialists to European nobility. In her later years, she visited Taos after a difficult breakup with Clark Gable and eventually settled here. She became close friends with many of the founding members of the Taos Society of

ODD FELLOWS Manby Hot Springs These two sand bottom and rock pools located near the ruins of an old stagecoach stop on the east bank of the Río Grande are named for a ruthless, land-grabbing swindler named Arthur Manby. The British immigrant’s shady business dealings beginning in the late 1880s are still widely held to be the motive behind his “mysterious” death in 1929. One of his unrealized visions was to create gardens and a grand hotel for tourists on the Indian land that became known as the Manby Hot Springs. To get there, head north of Taos to the town of Arroyo Hondo; from State Highway 522 North at mile 5.3 turn west onto County Road B007. Go about 2.5 miles and turn left onto another dirt road just before B007 makes a hard turn to the right. This stretch of road to the Manby Hot Springs parking lot needs to be taken slowly and is best negotiated with a high-clearance vehicle. Continue past the Dobson House sign and take the next left fork. Continue staying to your right until you reach the large parking lots for the Manby Hot Springs. At the left side of the parking area, take the dirt and rock path to the river, about a 15-20 minute walk.

The D.H. Lawrence memorial chapel on the grounds of the D.H. Lawrence Ranch is said to have the famous and controverisal author's ashes mixed in the mortar.

Hotel La Fonda de Taos

KATHARINE EGLI

One of the earliest hotels in town, Hotel La Fonda de Taos on Taos Plaza, unexpectedly houses a collection of “Forbidden Art” paintings by author D.H. Lawrence. A former owner of the hotel and fan of Lawrence named Saki Karavas acquired the collection from the second husband of Lawrence’s widow, Frieda, after her death in 1956. Karavas displayed the paintings in his office along with countless other paintings and photos. One could pay a dollar or two to view them. Today, representations of the “Forbidden Art Collection” hang in their own gallery in the historic La Fonda.

D.H. Lawrence Ranch Speaking of Lawrence, after he died in France in 1930 of tuberculosis, his widow, Frieda, had his body cremated. The ashes were returned to the New Mexico ranch and mixed with the mortar used to build his memorial chapel on the property.

JULY 12-14

The Taos Pueblo Powwow is the gathering of a people to celebrate their friendships, culture and traditions. RIC K RO MA NC ITO

Culture, tradition, color, unity, song and dance all in one very special event. Hundreds of Indian tribes from around the country come to Taos to participate in traditional dance competitions. Now in its 32nd year, the Taos Pueblo community is proud of the powwow’s longevity and high attendance — very few American powwows have such a strong and lasting history. “A powwow is a gathering of Indian Nations in a common circle of friendship. Indian Country is made up of many tribal nations, bands, villages and pueblos, each with their own traditional tribal beliefs and practices. A powwow is the common fiber which draws Indian people together. It’s a time for sharing with old friends and making new friends; a time for singing and dancing. It is also a time for trading — trading craft goods and trading songs.” — Excerpted from “Around the Drum,” by Richard Archuleta, Taos Pueblo.

THE HOUSE ITSELF, CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC FOR DECADES, NOW REVEALS TO THE VIEWER THE GREAT ARTISTRY AND SKILL IN WOODCARVING OF RUSSIAN PAINTER NICHOLAI FECHIN. IN THE CARE of the Taos Art Museum, the house itself is a work of art. Fechin built the home in the 1920s and ‘30s. It displays not only his works, but those of the original Taos Society of Artists. In addition to showing these early works, the Taos Art Museum, now celebrating its 15th year, brings to Taos some extraordinary exhibits.

FECHIN PURCHASED a home and outbuildings on seven acres in the town in 1927. He not only remodeled the house, enlarging it and bringing windows from Philadelphia, but he blended his native Russian woodcarving designs with those he embraced in his new country, from Pueblo and Hispanic styles to Art Deco. The similar motifs, the carved beams and handmade furniture merge into an

HIS EXCEPTIONALLY WELLCRAFTED house with its warm, white tierra blanca walls offers the perfect environs to show the bright paintings of Fechin and his early Taos contemporaries. The museum has works by Oscar E. Berninghaus, E. Irving Couse, W.H. Dunton, Eugenie Fish Glaman, Victor Higgins, Joseph Sharp and Duane Van Vecten. IN ADDITION TO using the space to display and teach visitors about the early artists, the museum’s Executive Director Christy Schoedinger Coleman is most excited about a first-time exhibition of the varied works of artist Marjorie Eaton. Eaton, who came to Taos in 1928, is known as a modernist with cubist influences. She turned to film in the 1940s. “Marjorie Eaton: A Life in Pictures,” runs from April 2019 through March 2020. OTHER UPCOMING EVENTS on the Taos Art Museum’s calendar for this summer and fall are many and diverse, from plein air paintings to opera performances. THE TAOS ART MUSEUM at Fechin House is located on 227 Paseo del Pueblo Norte. Admission is $10 for adults, $9 for seniors, $6 for students, and children under 12 are free. The museum is also free to members (see taosartmuseum.org) and free to Taos County residents on Sundays.

MORGAN TIMMS

FECHIN, BORN IN KAZAN, RUSSIA, in 1881, learned woodcarving from his father and graduated from the Imperial Art Academy. Because of the difficulties in Russia following the Bolshevik Revolution and World War I, Fechin and his wife, Alexandra, and daughter, Eya, immigrated to the United States in 1923. Mabel Dodge Luhan hosted the family in Taos. Fechin had contracted tuberculosis and was looking for a place with dry air. They had been encouraged to visit by artist John Young Hunter, who told them of the art colony here.

inspiring unity of form. Alexandra, following their divorce in 1933, continued to live in the house into the 1970s (Fechin died in 1955). In 1979, the house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places and in 1981 Eya Fechin opened the house as the Fechin Institute in memory of her father. After her death, the Taos Art Museum acquired the property from Fechin’s granddaughter in 2002 with the goal of preserving and opening it to the public.

IDA KAVAFIAN: CELEBRATING 35 YEARS WITH MUSIC FROM ANGEL FIRE By Ariana Kramer

IDA KAVAFIAN, ARTISTIC DIRECTOR of Music from Angel Fire, is celebrating her 35th-year anniversary with the world-class chamber music festival. Kavafian has been the life force and glue behind the festival’s success. She talked about her musical beginnings and what Music from Angel Fire has meant to her over the years. “My whole family is comprised of musicians – grandparents, aunts and uncles, parents, my sister,” said Kavafian. “So, it was natural that I would become a musician.”

Kavafian was born in 1952 in Istanbul, Turkey, to Armenian parents. They met while playing professionally for the Istanbul State Symphony. “My father was principal violist, and my mother was in the first violin section,” Kavafian explained. “My mother gave up her career to raise her two girls.”  Kavafian came to the U.S. in 1956. She grew up in Detroit, Michigan. Her older sister took violin lessons from a teacher who came to their home.  C O N T I N U E S p 92

For 36 years, Music from Angel Fire has been bringing worldclass musicians performing masterworks in communities that would never have the opportunity to experience the joy of classical music. The MFAF mission is also to bring educational concerts and classes to area schools and main stage audiences, not just during the festival but during the year as well. COURTESY CHERYLYNN TSUSHIMA

than 1,000 year-round residents, that’s sort of amazing. The fact that this quality of music happens in this community is amazing and also the reason that it happens is because of the community.”

Ida Kavafian has served on the faculty of the Curtis Institute of Music since 1998, where she was recognized with the 2013 Lindback Foundation Award for Distinguished Teaching. Kavafian also serves on the faculty of the Bard College Conservatory of Music and has taught with the Juilliard School for many years.  

A unique element of Music from Angel Fire is the festival’s Young Artists Program. Since 1988, pre-professional musicians from the Curtis Institute of Music have come to the festival to study and perform with some of the country’s most distinguished professional chamber musicians. Most years, Music from Angel Fire commissions both a professional American composer and a young composer from the Curtis Institute to create new works of music, which are premiered at the festival. The young artists also promote the art of music by engaging in schools and community

“I’ve come to teaching later on in my life, and I’ve done a lot of performing and traveling before then,” Kavafian reflected. “I feel I had such amazing mentors and teachers myself, that I really want to pass down some of their principles and teachings so it will last for another generation.” COURTESY PHOTO

“I was always curious

about what they were doing,” remembers Kavafian. “I was about 6 years old. Finally, the violin teacher gave me a pitch test and a rhythm test, and decided I had talent and he wanted to teach me violin.”

The teacher told Kavafian he would bring her a little violin to play the next week and after some practicing in secret, she gave a presentation to her parents. Her father was delighted, but her mother thought her youngest daughter was too independent to want to practice. Soon, however, her mother warmed to the idea. A young Ida began her music lessons in earnest with that same teacher, Ara Zerounian. Years later, after Kavafian’s father passed away, Zerounian became her stepfather. Kavafian went on to attend Juilliard School in New York City where she studied with Oscar Shumsky. She became a superb professional musician, internationally acclaimed as both a violist and a violinist. Kavafian performs as a soloist, a chamber musician and is frequently in recital with her sister, violinist Ani Kavafian. 

She advises her students that it’s best not to have too many fixed ideas about how their career paths will develop. Her own career has unfolded in unexpected ways — it has been a fulfilling one. “I always tell my students to be open to what might come your way and not to have set career goals, because sometimes you can miss things that come while you’re looking for that. I think it’s best to go ahead and just take it all in, and then find your way,” said Kavafian. “We can have experiences that we might not be looking for, but are available to us.” 

outreach performances.

This year, the 36th annual Music from Angel Fire presents the world premiere of Richard Danielpour’s “A Shattered Vessel” for string quartet on Friday, Aug. 16, at the Angel Fire Community Auditorium in Angel Fire. There is a repeat performance on Saturday, Aug. 17, at Old Martina’s Hall in Taos. The event runs from Aug. 16 to Sept. 1. For more information, visit musicfromangelfire.org or call (575) 377-3233.

Kavafian is a longtime member of the Lincoln Chamber Music Society, which she joined in 1972. She plays regularly with the piano quartet Opus One and the ensemble Trio Valtorna, both of which she co-founded. Kavafian also founded Tashi and the Bravo! Vail Valley Music Festival. She was a member of the Beaux Arts Trio for six years.

ONE OF TAOS’ LONGTIME JEWELRY DESIGNERS AND GOLDSMITHS IS EMILY BENOIST RUFFIN. In her workshop in a back room at her shop at 119 Bent Street, there is a controlled chaos of tools from exotic-headed hammers to ancient bezel blocks. Towering cabinets with small drawers line the walls. Piled up are large loose-leaf binders. But it is here where Ruffin is most comfortable and creative — sitting at her workbench with tools in hand. “I love making jewelry because as I sit quietly, with an entire tiny universe laid out in front of me, time ceases to TAOS NEWS FILE PHOTOS exist,” she told The Taos News. Ruffin has been constructing jewelry in Taos since 1980. In front of Ruffin’s workshop is the Emily Benoist Ruffin Design & Goldsmiths retail shop. Her work is displayed along with more than a dozen other local and European goldsmiths/art jewelers. Ruffin’s signature piece is the Stripe Ring. Hand-constructed like most all of her work, she calls it “one of my reputation makers.” It exemplifies the designedly, made-fromscratch and laborious process that has ropelled Ruffin to the forefront of the national and international hand-constructed jewelry-making scene. “For me, jewelry design is a combination of art and science,” she said. “I was always good in math and loved mechanics. It’s a form of small architecture or small sculpture for me.”

MORE FOR THE JEWELRY JUNKIE from Chicago, she brings to her work the influence of her childhood exposure to dance, theater and art.

Bryan’s Gallery For 35 years, Bryan’s Gallery has been showcasing a little bit of everything Southwest. They have a fine selection of jewelry from about a dozen local artists.

THE PEOPLE. THE WARM, QUIRKY, TAOS FOLKS. And food. Taos cuisine has the best of all worlds: Mexican and New Mexican, Native American, Latin American, North American, European and even Asian. Taos flavors are multilayered and have a little bit of everything. To be honest, food is what I miss the most. I can always look at pictures of Taos. I can Skype with my Taoseño friends. But I can’t eat a virtual enchilada or enjoy a Facebook burrito. They haven’t been invented. Yet. The following is a personal restaurant roundup: the best places for breakfast, lunch, tapas and dinner in

Taos, plus a special category for dessert, because as every foodie knows, desserts are a category on their own. You can’t choose just one. C O N T I N U E S p 108

TAPAS AT PARCHT BOTTLESHOP + BITES

BREAKFAST, OR MORE OF TEN BRUNCH, AT GUTIZ was a tradition for the Florimbamba

Social Club, as a group of friends used to call ourselves. Florimbamba is a combination of “flor” and “bamba,” flower and music. The florimbamberas would meet on Saturdays at Gutiz to enjoy Parisian crepes, those delicious pockets of goodness filled with ham, brie and cheddar cheese, onions and mushrooms, everything covered on a Béchamel sauce that provided the perfect background for all the other ingredients. The crepes have a touch of chile, too, and come with a fresh salad. A perfect example of the Latin-French fusion style that puts a Taos spin on world-known dishes.

→ MIDDAY

LUNCH AT THE FARMHOUSE CAFÉ AND BAKERY: SHEPHERD’S PIE.

The café offers a vegetarian pie, with mushrooms, very tasty, but I am partial to the traditional one made with lamb. The mashed potato crust is soft and delectable. Small pieces of corn and carrots pop in every bite, and the meat is so tender that it dissolves in the mouth.

One of the few places in Taos where you can have the true Spanish experience of tapas (small bites) with beer or wine.

It’s impossible to choose only one, so here is a sample of the best:

ORLANDO’S FLAN:

The “bites” include Castelvetrano olives, heirloom tomato and basil and a sweet and savory combination of chocolate, fruit and nuts. I usually ordered a board with a selection of cheese (Campo de Montalban and Manchego )—and charcuterie (serrano ham, prosciutto) — oh my! Boards are beautifully presented with crostini, mustard and the miniature French pickles known as cornichons. Among the wines you can find Gruet Blanc de Noir from New Mexico, Nicolas Feuillatte Brut, Chateau la Coustarelle Cahors from France and many others.

So light and fluffy, with a dollop of whipped cream. Flan de angeles, a flan for angels, a devout friend calls it.

MINI CHIMICHANGAS AT ANTONIO’S: They are, as their name indicates, small chimichangas stuffed with mango and cream cheese that are served warm with ice cream. Maybe it’s the combination of hot and cold, but the mix of ice cream and fried dough is totally decadent.

MAZAMORRA MORADA AT QUECHUA: A typical Peruvian dish that you won’t find anywhere else in Taos: pudding made with purple corn, spiced with cinnamon.

ENDING THE DAY

DINNER AT ORLANDO’S: THE BLUE CORN GREEN CHILE SHRIMP ENCHILADAS

MONDO ITALIANO’S TIRAMISU:

Enchiladas come with pozole, beans and a small fresh salad. Everything was so consistently good that I didn’t want to try anything else. The service is consistently good (and fast) as well.

VOTED: BEST BREAKFAST

Classic and excellent. Creamy and light, it tastes even better accompanied with a cappuccino. Bon appétit and enjoy the many culinary adventures available to you.

FROM QUESTA TO TAOS, THERE ARE A NUMBER OF EASY TRAILS THAT BORDER THE RÍO GRANDE GORGE.

VISITORS COULD BENEFIT FROM AN ACCLIMATIZATION HIKE

A GOOD WAY TO START your hiking experience in Taos is an acclimatization hike or two, especially if you’re a flatlander accustomed to strolling along paths at low altitudes. There are a dozen trails 3,000 feet lower than the lowest popular trails around Taos Ski Valley.

Be safe, be prepared

The following are four suggestions by William “Backpacker” Kemsley, founder of Backpacker magazine, co-founder of the American Hiking Society and Mmber of the Appalachian Trail Hall of Fame. He lives in the mountains near Taos.

navigation aids when wandering into unfamiliar territory.

Always let someone know where you are going and when you expect to return.

*

1.West Rim Trail

Take adequate clothing, * water , snacks and

ONE OF TAOS’ EASY, MOST SCENIC TRAILS RUNS along the top of the west rim of the Río Grande Goge from the rest area at the Gorge Bridge on U.S. Highway 64, nine miles to State Road 567 at the south. You’ll have spectacular views of the inner gorge and likely see bighorn sheep as well. From Taos, take U.S. Highway 64 north to the Gorge Bridge. From the south take State Road 68 to Pilar, then right on State Road 570. Go along beside the Río Grande, crossing over on the Taos Junction Bridge (note the state road changes at the bridge to State Road 567) and up the canyon wall to the trailhead on the rim.

*

Unless you are experienced and familiar with the area, never hike alone.

Prayer flags and a labrynth are a pleasant surprise about a mile into the West Rim Trail. SCOTT GERDES

JIM O’DONNELL

2.Vista Verde Trail

3.El Nogal Nature Trail

THIS IS A LITTLE JEWEL where you are likely to see bighorn sheep if you go early in the morning. It’s a one-andone-fourth mile trail (two-and-one-half miles out and back) over relatively easy terrain. This trail has been used for over a thousand years as evidenced by petroglyphs on its rocks. There are a couple of viewing benches perched high above the Río Grande at the trail’s end. The canyon is a natural habitat for eagles. Access on State Road 570 from Pilar south of Taos, crossing the Taos Junction Bridge in about five to six miles, where the road changes to State Road 567. The trailhead is about a half-mile up the canyon wall.

THIS IS AN EASY TWO-MILE LOOP TRAIL tucked away between two of Taos’ most popular trails – the Divisadero and South Boundary. These are the closest trails to Taos. They are out of the El Nogal parking lot about 3 miles from Taos Plaza on State Road 64 eastbound. The trailhead is at the far end (east) of the parking lot. Take either end of the loop. The first turn to the left after crossing the footbridge follows alongside a stream, the other is straight up the hill to the trail divide where you take the left fork. Both go a mile to the next parking area around back to the starting point (clockwise around from the lower branch, or counter clockwise from the upper branch) completing the loop.

4. Rift Valley Overlook Trails

THIS IS A COMPLEX OF SOME 20-PLUS MILES OF EASY TRAILS south of Taos on the east rim of the Río Grande Gorge. There are many views of the inner gorge with a couple of viewing benches overlooking the mighty inner gorge. If you are lucky you might see an eagle. Access is from two parking lots. The closest to Taos is located past the Taos Country Club at the end of County Road 110, which leaves State Road 68 about two miles south of Ranchos de Taos. The other is about six miles south of Ranchos on State Road 68 just below Stakeout Road.

SOMETIMES YOU JUST NEVER KNOW who might show up. At the debut of the new open mic hosted by blues artist Tony Mason on Feb. 5 at the Burger Stand at Taos Ale House, none other than Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes (pictured at right) took the stage. Shown here with her wife, Jesse Lafser, accompanying her on guitar, Howard performed a couple of folk tunes to a packed house of surprised fans. Later, Tempo asked Howard what brought her back to Taos after her stellar performance with Alabama Shakes Aug. 6, 2016 in Kit Carson Park. "I've been coming back every year since, then," she said. "I just couldn't stay away." She said she had never been to Taos before that big performance in the park, which was one of the biggest outdoor rock concerts ever in Taos. With her stopping by the local open mic, maybe we'll be seeing more of her.

Williams Lake

Proposed Trail

B Y C O DY H O O K S

THE DREAM of a world-class

trail that meanders through New MexicoTHE alongDREAM the Río Grande OF is a little closer to reality.trail that a world-class

meanders through

tions of trails include 3.6 miles of the Red River Fault Trail and the Pescado Trail, both located near the national monument visitors center outside of Cerro, New Mexico. Commissioners also added seven miles of trails that are managed by the State Land Office. In May 2018, the commission added 26.5 miles of existing paths in the monument, including Las Vistas de Questa Trail, River Trail and the Rinconada Loop Trail, to the Río Grande Trail. John Bailey, manager of the Río Grande del Norte National Monument, said his office is in conversation with the Carson National Forest to rebuild a bridge across the Red River at the Wild Rivers Recreation Area, an essential link in the Río Grande Trail.

A decision last fall approves rerouting the first three-quarters of a mile of the Williams Lake Trail, which is about two miles long and is by far one of the most popular hiking destinations in the state. SCOTT GERDES

Also in September 2018, the Forest Service approved the “2018 Taos Ski Valley Trails Project.” The project was proposed by the ski valley corpora-

tion, which holds a special use permit in the forest. The original scoping letter said Taos Ski Valley was proposing to build six new mountain bike trails totaling approximately 7.2 miles. But the final decision calls for building eight new mountain bike trails totaling about 15 miles. The decision also approves rerouting the first three-quarters of a mile of the Williams Lake Trail, which is about two miles long and is by far one of the most popular hiking destinations in the state. The re-routing of the Williams Lake Trail takes a segment that currently follows a service road and moves the trail into the trees inside the Forest Service boundary. This is a heavily used hiking trail and the new route provides a better experience for those who wish to get off the beaten path. This story first appeared in The Taos News.

The state commission charged with creating the Río Grande Trail officially added about 34 miles of existing paths in Taos County to the map during its September 2018 meeting in Taos. Boosters hope one day this will be a 500-mile-long trail through the state of New Mexico. After the decision, the Río Grande Trail now has a sizable length of continuous trail. Since most of the trail runs through the Río Grande del Norte National Monument near Questa, New Mexico, commissioners called this section the “del Norte” part of the trail, which is managed by the Bureau of Land Management.

Added to the Río Grande Trail include the about 23 miles of East Rim Trail in the wideopen, rugged and isolated areas around Ute Mountain.

The parts added to the Río Grande Trail include the about 23 miles of East Rim Trail in the wide-open, rugged and isolated areas around Ute Mountain. This portion starts at the Colorado state line and wraps around the western side of Ute Mountain. The “trail” is mostly a double-track road, which will stay open to vehicle use. The two other sec-

WILD FREE

Whitewater Rafting

AND

See yourself out there. Whether whitewater rafting down the mighty Río Grande, riding a real steam train through the mountains, golfing at high altitude or floating over Taos is on your bucket list, get ready to cross it off.

Rocking and rolling through the storied waters of the Río Grande is a thrill to be experienced. And because Mother Nature blessed us with abundant snowfall this past winter, the water is expected to be lively. Taos has a number of experienced and reputable whitewater rafting outfitters who will provide a family-friendly excursion you’ll never forget. Rafting requires no experience. Participants can choose whether to paddle or not, and it doesn’t take a tremendous amount of effort to get down the river. Each raft holds two to six people, not including the guide. Water temperatures are typically warmer in New Mexico than other Western rivers. The rafting season is from March to October.

Horseback Riding

Fishing

Area horseback rides are suitable for riders of every experience level, including first-time cowboys and cowgirls.

Several fly shops do business within the Enchanted Circle. There is a reason for this: the Taos area offers some of the finest trout fishing waters in the country. The cutthroat is the official State of New Mexico fish.

TAOS SKI VALLEY On top of the world STAFF REPORT

Birds-eye view of Taos Ski Valley. CHRIS DAHL-BREDINE

It’s a little bit European. It’s a little bit New Mexico. It’s a lot steep and beautiful. The majestic mountain that is home to Taos skiing in the winter, is just as alluring in the summer. The vast, rugged terrain and generous, free-spirited community call out to a different kind of adventurer — a mountain lover with a passion for outdoor thrills and a taste for cultural discovery. Here hiking and bicycling are king once the snow has melted away. There are many hiking trails to chose from. The hike to Williams Lake Trail is a popular trek accessed at the parking lot in which 1,000 feet are gained in altitude (start at about 10,000 feet) in just under 2 miles. Englemann spruce stands dominate the beginning of the trail. As you get closer to the upper end, it opens up into meadow land and scattered rock fields. Another reward for reaching the natural lake is the opportunity to continue on up to Wheeler Peak along the Wheeler Peak Trail, the highest point in New Mexico at 13,131 feet. Other trails include Long Canyon/Bull of the Woods at 3.6 miles; Gavilan at 2.4 miles; Italianos Canyon at 3.5 miles; Manzanita Canyon at 4.2 miles; and Yerba Canyon at 4.0 miles. For more details on the trails and maps, go online to skitaos.com. The popular Northside Trail (ridenorthside.com) is a self-guided, fee-based mountain biking area on 1,200 acres of private recreational development. As a mapped and signed trail system designed especially for mountain biking, Northside is a looped trail network with spectacular overlooks, single and double track routes through blue spruce and aspen stands, and meadows. The terrain is best suited for the intermediate and higher level rider. Singletracks. com selected Northside as one of the 20 most scenic mountain bike trails in the Western U.S.

on the property at an average grade of less than 10 percent. Northside is open dawn to dusk from late June through October, weather permitting. Access permits are for sale at many locations in Taos Ski Valley or at the trailhead kiosk. Permits are also sold in Taos at Taos Cyclery and Gearing Up Bike Shop. And just because will flowers have replaced snow, that doesn’t mean you can’t ride a chairlift to the top of the Taos Ski Valley world. All of that exploration and adventure is sure to need fuel. The popular Bavarian Restaurant has reopened, with renovations that include a larger deck. The Resort Center has a rejuvenated look and feel as well. Other restaurants are creating new menus in a commitment to providing more choices for healthier and selective diets with food coming from New Mexico sources, including organic produce and sustainable fisheries. Taos Ski Valley eateries include Northern New Mexican cuisine at Stray Dog Cantina; The Blonde Bear Tavern, featuring refined European alpine cuisine; and the 192 restaurant at The Blake, which specializes in woodfired pizza and eclectic tapas. While you’re out there, keep in mind that the mornings and evenings are chilly. It’s wise to dress in layers. If relieving stress and a little bit of pampering is what you seek, head to The Blake where you’ll find an excellent spa, outdoor pool and a very impressive art collection awaiting. Taos Ski Valley brings ancestry to life. It has become an unexpected cultural center comprised of Native American, Spanish and Anglo tradition. It’s like nowhere else.

For the even more adventurous, one can pedal to the top of Frazer Mountain, 12,163 feet, the highest point On top of the world is putting it mildly when you reach Wheeler Peak, accessed by the Williams Lake Trail in Taos Ski Valley. JIM O’DONNELL S U M M E R / F A L L

O’Keeffe went on to paint the Penitente cross by the morada (Penitentes’ gathering place) behind the Dodge Luhan property and other crosses. She painted Taos Pueblo, San Francisco de Asís Catholic Church, a tree on the D.H. Lawrence ranch (that still stands), Mexican paper flowers, wood carvings, wild flowers, hills and sky around Taos. The Ghost Ranch If not for Mabel Dodge Luhan’s accusation that O’Keeffe was having an affair with Tony, maybe the famous painter would have stayed a little longer in Taos. Having none of that, O’Keeffe packed her bags and never spoke to Dodge Luhan again. Even though Dodge Luhan was generous, in spite of herself she always put her wrong foot forward. O’Keeffe’s work was the most important thing in her life. Gossip was like a noxious weed. She eventually found a home at the Ghost Ranch in Abiquiú. Santa Fe and Taos really were not places she considered making her permanent home — wherever she was going to put down her Southwest roots, she wanted to be the only painter in town interpreting the land. And for many years, she was the only painter in Ghost Ranch country.

After relocating, O’Keeffe would come back to Taos to visit friends and to paint. Here she met photographer Ansel Adams. They became close friends. She bought a piano so Adams could play (he was trained as a concert pianist) when he visited her in Abiquiú. O’Keeffe loved music and said she tried to learn to play the violin, but it was too hard on her fingers. She also wanted to sing, but didn’t have the talent. Instead, she hoped people could see the music that she painted. She also went back to New York, mostly in the winter and spring, even though the long separations put a strain on her relationship with Stieglitz. He never came to New Mexico. After his death in 1946, Ghost Ranch became her permanent home. O’Keeffe died on March 6, 1986. She was nearly 100 years old. Her ashes were scattered on her Cerro Pedernal.

Roberta Courtney Meyers is a local storyteller, composer, playwright and poet who grew up knowing many of Taos’ famous and infamous.
