... pulling and pushing a floating person in the water) Session for me. I had such a wonderful experience. Alan had no formal training but, intuitively he was GREAT at it. I felt like a baby being rocked in the water. It was one of my great memories of being in Santa Fe. Joanna and I did a little of this for each other...and it was a sweet experience as well. They now have hammocks that you can go lay in when you get out of the water....I highly recommend that!!, On the way to Ojo ...
... 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. ...
... that can build a community like that. It is an ambitious goal, and would require a great deal of willpower to conjure into reality... good thing we are going to the Amazon basin where willpower is grown and cultivated!

When I arrived on the Earthship Biotecture grounds that first Monday morning I never could have imagined what was in store. While learning about the building process this month I ended up learning more about myself. I am feeling ambitious ...
Travelling through outback Colorado and New Mexico you see an amazing variety of scenic landscapes from high mountains to sagebrush covered plains. One feature which stands out is the Great Sandhills of Colorado. These amazing high plains hills (9000ft) are in an alpine area banked up against massive mountains. They cover 300 square miles and reach up to 500ft in height. They are the result of thousands of years of sand/silt washing down from the mountains and ...

Inn was excellent after you get past the worn-looking exterior
My wife and I stayed here for two nights in September, 2005. The well-worn exterior and low price made me wonder if I had made a good choice. However, the room was perfectly fine and very quiet, the bar was nice and relaxed, the price of the room was very reasonable and the breakfast was GREAT. It was a hot, off-the-menu breakfast which was served to us at our table - promptly.
The pool and courtyard were also very inviting.
We spent just one night in Taos, and the Quality Inn delivered. The front desk woman was very pleasant and helpful... she switched our room when we weren't happy with the first one (the first was a king room that overlooked the roof and was adjacent to the stairs). Our second room was pretty spacious with two queens, a large dresser, table and chairs. The room was standard in decor, but the price was right. However, we could hear full conversations in both adjoining rooms (thin walls). I would recommend that future guests ask for a room that is well-removed from other people. We did not have the complimentary breakfast because the restaurant was packed with at least eight other tables ahead of us awaiting their food... we simply didn't have time to spend an hour on breakfast. We also didn't use the outdoor pool due to the cool weather, but it looks like a great place, especially for families. The Quality Inn is located a good mile or two away from the plaza and shops, but worth the price.
My wife and I spent two nights here and everything was very good to excellent. Our room was large and very clean. Most of the staff were very pleasant and helpful. When we asked for restaurant suggestions, one of the front desk clerks recommended Vestini's (Italian) just a few blocks from the hotel, and our dinners were excellent.
Quality is right!
The Quality Inn in Taos, N.M. was a perfect antidote to the expensive lodging for skiiers heading to Taos. It was conveniently located just off the highway, and the added bonus of a complimentary hot breakfast made it the perfect resting spot for our recent ski trip.
Good location. Has a heated indoor pool. Some of the nicest service people I've met in the hotel industry. Outstanding breakfast
Stayed here in November 04 for 1 night due entirely to the fact that the B&B we had booked on the web had to close due to circumstances beyond their control. They had booked us in here instead, so not our 1st choice.
OK, nothing special
Smallish room, showing signs of wear, but on the top floor and away from the highway, so it was quiet. High-speed internet access worked OK. Basic hot breakfast in restaurant was good, but the wait staff was a bit overworked.
