We had set off in dismal weather and as we approached the mountains the sleet only heightened our apprehension. But unbelievably in the space of literally a couple of minutes as we reached the 'summit' the other side opened up in sunshine. I thought that only happened in films! It's amazing what a dose of sunshine does to your mood after oppressive clouds, especially when you've been up in amongst them.
We crossed the state line into "The land of Enchantment" and found our spot in Taos RV Park where we could have slept in a Tipi, how cool is that? - pretty cool this time of year, especially at night! But since Bree had done such an admirable job, we could hardly abandon him.
We went into town; the rich terracotta adobe buildings were bathed in sunshine, it was indeed very different from the towns we have been in so far.
But the family in the car that parked next to us was in fancy dress...how quaint...oh! of course it was Halloween. Great that Mum & Dad had entered into the spirit of things, taking the kids trick and treating. As we walked up Kit Carson Rd (really!) we saw more witches and as we turned into the plaza...
Well, the whole town seemed to be in fancy dress, shops were decorated, trees adorned with spiders and webs, shopkeepers clutching baskets heavy with treats stood as though their costumes were entirely normal attire! The whole place was alive and buzzing. We felt very underdressed and rather lacking in the treat department! It seems this really is a land of enchantment..
