Leaving Taos

We’ve enjoyed our time in Taos these past two days, but it’s time to continue on our journey. Tomorrow we check out of the Taos Inn and settle back into the car for about 2 hours until our next stop, which will be Santa Fe (A comparatively short drive, for sure!)

Of course, that assumes the driving estimates of all the online maps are correct, but from my experience, they tend to grossly underestimate the time by a variable factor that increases exponentially as the road becomes more rural. Perhaps the presence of livestock creates a time-sink in their algorithms that they are failing to account for.

Don’t forget that you can see where I am at on my trip live (theoretically at least) HERE
