Taos is one of my favorite places. Lots of interesting people live in Taos. John Nichols, for one. He wrote the Empaneda Brotherhood, one of my favorite books. It’s a fun read.￼ The drive from here to Raton Pass is spectacular.￼￼ Raton Pass is a very steep road leading from New Mexico into Colorado. It’s especially spectacular￼￼ if you’re in a Volkswagen Westy with a 90 hp engine. Maximum speed up the pass is about 25 miles an hour.
Nobody seems to mind you chugging along uphill when you’re in a Volkswagen Westfalia. In fact people cheer you on…￼
