I spent some time in an area called Bandelier National Monument- Beautiful canyons and great hiking- it is outside of Santa Fe and near Albequerque- I don't know if that is close to Taos or not- There are some ancient cave dwellings you can hike to that are great- lots of Native American history in the area- Good luck- Cliff ---------- From: jmw/cmu[SMTP:email@example.com] Sent: Tuesday, April 27, 1999 4:31 AM To: Loopers-Delight@annihilist.com; MAX@LISTS.MCGILL.CA; firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: OT: Goin' to Taos for vacation - ideas? My wife & I will be in the Taos, New Mexico area from 5/8 thru 5/22*. Just wondering if anyone on the list has ideas about interesting things to see & do in the area. I'm sure we will have no problem finding the usual tourist traps but sometimes you need inside help to find the really interesting events & performances (the stranger the better). Thanks in advance. John * we'll be attending a workshop on building "Earthships" - completely off-the-grid sustainable housing using recycled tires, timber, bottles & cans.
