Churches and canyons

What’s up guys?! Since we’re leaving Taos soon, we’ve been trying to notice all of its good attributes. One of them is the fascinating old buildings, churches, and other structures. Another is all the great hikes around here.

Last week, Dad and I joined our friends on a hike at Plaza Blanca near Abiquiu:

We have been having quite a few thundershowers in the afternoons, but the upside is the rainbows:

Here are some pictures of the many small churches, school houses, and old adobe buildings that you will find around Taos:

San Francisco de Asis in Ranchos de Taos is very famous. Maybe you have seen the Georgia O’Keefe painting of it:

Plaza Blanca wasn’t the only hike I did. Mom, Dad and I also hiked the Canoncito waterfall here in Arroyo Seco. We had a blast and got to see amazing views.

This will probably be my last blog post from New Mexico since we are heading back to Massachusetts in a couple of days. Thanks for reading!
