... at a roadside fruit stand...just a family selling locally grown Apricots, cherries and little else. Those apricots reminded me of what I grew up with in CA and haven't been able to find since. Picked fully RIPE. They were bursting with flavor....the cherries were excellent as well. We also saw a sign by the side of the road advertising a lavender farm...they also had very fine brochures at the train depot in Santa Fe. Great marketing...but actually not worth the washboard ...
... 38 miles til empty and they had had a storm come thru and lightening struck the main transformer and the whole town was without power so we couldn't get gas. We had to backtrack to Trinidad Colo to get gas and made it with 16 miles left til empty. So that was enough excitement to last us for a while. ...
Complete change of scenery and weather !
We left Moab a few days ago and travelled towards Durango in Colorado.
Just before reaching Durango we visited the Mesa Verde Nation Park, which offers a spectacular look into the lives of the Ancestral Pueblo people who made it their home for over 700 years, from AD 600 to 1300. We visited several cliff dwellings, one of them ...
... snowmobiles. Even though it was cold, I was sweating like a beast and we were all exhausted. We wanted to reach a spot with a good view of the mountains so we decided to suck it up and took the steep route. We made the right decision because soon after we reached an amazing lookout! It was such a satisfying feeling to have reached the top of the mountain we were on. The way down was an ease and was a much more joyous experience than the way up.
Sunday, Monday – June 1 & 3
We left Bandelier National Monument and drove some of the switchbacks to head north to Taos. The drive to Taos is stunning and I can only imagine what the views are like when snow is on the ground. The Rio Grande flows south along the highway, while the Sangre de Cristo Mountains rise up to the northeast.
The Apaches and Navajos settled here over a thousand years ago. There is also ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Comfort Suites Taos
Il check-in è stato molto rapido, la camera era grande abbastanza per tutti noi (eravamo in sei in camera). La colazione aveva un sacco di scelta: frutta, yogurt, waffle, cereali, succo di frutta, caffè. Era tutto pulito. Grazie. Ai bambini è piaceva stare al piano terra, dove c'è una porta che dà direttamente sulla piscina e l'idromassaggio.
Le check-in a été très agréable, la chambre était suffisamment grande pour nous tous (nous étions 6 dans la chambre).
Il y avait beaucoup de choix au petit déjeuner : fruits, yaourts, gaufres, céréales, jus de fruits, café etc...
Tout était propre. MERCI.
Les enfants ont aimé être au premier étage avec la porte qui donnait directement sur la piscine et le jacuzzi.
Check in was very nice, room was big enough for all (we had 6 in the room). Breakfast had lots of choices, fruit+yogurt, waffles, cereal, juice, coffee, etc. Everything was clean. THANK YOU
Kids liked being on 1st floor with slider door directly to pool and hot tub.
Our family just returned from a 5 day stay at this hotel. This was our second time to stay there and I don't think I'll be staying there again. We originally stayed there in March 2 years ago.
I like this hotel
This is the second time I have stayed here. The first time was about 7 years ago when the hotel was probably about brand new. The hotel has of course aged a little bit but it is still a nice very clean, comfortable and quiet place. I thought the rate they gave us was exceptional for this area.
The Sagebrush Inn is right next door and shares the parking lot. I believe they are owned by the same owner. It is nice to be able to walk next door for some evening entertainment at the Sage Brush.
I'll stay here again.
You can do better for the money
The previous entries were right on target. The Jun 25, 2005: A TripAdvisor Member, Tucker, GA description was extremely accurate. The staff was not friendly. The room lay-out with one king and one queen was weird. The furniture was worn. The Chamber of Commerce directed us to either Comfort Suites or Hampton Suites. I've heard good things about the Sagebrush Inn (allegedly the same owner as the Comfort Suites) so we decided to go with Comfort Suites. Hampton Suites is across the street and seems newer - wish we would have stayed at Quality Inn closer to town or Hampton Suites.
0.2 miles OUTSIDE town
don't expect to feel welcomed here. No one is glad to see you even when the place is nearly unoccupied. We booked this hotel because it is advertised as being 0.2 miles from city center. Actually it is on the outskirts of town, probably more than 0.2 miles outside the city limits. An older 2-story motel with no elevator! Large suite with microwave and fridge and 1 king bed, 1 queen bed and a pull out sofa. Priced so the whole family can stay for cheap:) An unusually weird floor plan. Front desk staff could not really provide any recommendations for dinner so we named some places and were told each was "OK". Everyone is too laid back here to care much about anything!
This is a fairly new hotel and the property looks very nice, but apparently no one is paying attention to details. My wife and I chose this hotel because we've stayed at many other Comfort Suites and like the extra room most of the them have. But this one was a disaster. The hairdryer was missing from our bathroom when we checked in, the room had two TV's, but only one controller, the room had two telephones but no pens or pads to write on, and the sofabed cushions were so worn out it was very uncomfortable to sit on. The ice machine on our floor also was not working. In fairness to the hotel, the front desk clerk did get us a hairdryer and did tell us where to find another ice machine on another floor, but was not aware of any of these problems until we pointed them out. The staff was OK, but didn't know anything more than how to check us in and check us out. When we asked for restaurant suggestions, we were simply handed a tourist book listing the ones in the area.
The rooms are big but badly needing updating. There is no elevator to the second floor and the hallways are dark to the point of being dangerous. I would not stay here again.
We stayed for two nights (2 Rooms) on April 16 & 17 at the Comfort Suites in Taos. Our rooms were booked thru the Choice Hotels Web site. Our rate was $62.10 per night for a 2 queen bed suite, The rooms are big and comfortable. The only thing that needs attention are the light bulbs in the reading lamps, a highter wattage is in order. The outside rooms are much better, because a window can be opened for air. Our poolside room had no screen and the locking device for the sliding door was real poor. The staff were helpful and courteous during our stay. The general appearance and condition of the hotel are good, The swimming pool had debris on the bottom and the water was a bit cloudy. The breakfast room and food were average, there is plenty of parking also on the property. We would stay at the Comfort Suites again when in the Taos New Mexico area.
