Taos, New Mexico it's a smallish town in Northeastern New Mexico,
where about 25% of the population defines itself as an artists.
Tthere is a bookstore for every 1000 inhabitants. Where 3 or 4 of
the best restaurants I've ever eaten at are. Where the scenary is
as varied as desert and alpine conditions can be.
A couple of years ago we purchased 18 acres about 12 miles out
of town. We planned on building on it and eventually retiring. Once
we explored the possibilites it became obvious that we needed more
money to do that then we had....
So we did what most American's do when faced with an economic crisis.
We spent money... We purchased a small cabin just a couple of hundred
yards away in a small development called Valle
Eventually, we managed to make it "cute" and we've loved
visiting ever since. We have some before and after pictures of the
cabin, some of our land and some of Taos
on this web site.
If you're in the area, drop by the Taos
Pueblo, it's the oldest continuously inhabited place in North
America. While you're there stop by and see the Mirabal's, buy a
CD or an Flute from them.
