Our Enchanting Day

We had a wonderful day exploring the "Enchanted Circle" here in NM. We first went for breakfast in Angel Fire then headed to Taos geocaching along the highway thru Taos Canyon. 

At Taos we stopped first at the Indian Casino where our friend Brad was parked. We went inside and gambled a little. Bob's restroom break cost him $10 but Donna won 59 cents.

We briefly stopped at Walmart for some non-perishable stuff and cooler clothes for Donna as it was a lot warmer on this side of the circle.

We continued up to Questa where we checked out the camping at Wild River's National Recreation area which has just become a National Monument. The Rio Grande Gorge is beautiful but the camping was mostly for tents or small units. It was also 16 miles from town.
 After our dinner in Red River we headed home and came across this huge herd of elk.

 Continuing on we could see Eagle Lake in the distance.
 Upon entering the state park we were greeted by this beautiful buck.
