Weekend in New Mexico

The Hearts Desire Bed & Breakfast in Raton, New Mexico

The Old Taos InnGuesthouse in Taos

Lunch on the train

Ray and I just got back from a long weekend in New Mexico. We took the train to Raton. We really like taking the train. It takes about the same amount of time as driving, but it is so much more relaxing. We got off the train in Raton and drove to Taos. We stayed at the Old Taos Guesthouse bed and breakfast. It is an old adobe hacienda overlooking Taos. The hosts and the food were fantastic. We could have stayed there the whole time. Our room was beautiful with a fireplace. Very romantic. We looked around the galleries and ate at Doc Martins. Sunday afternoon, we drove back to Raton and stayed at The Hearts Desire which is a Victorian bed and breakfast. The meals were fantastic at both places. We went up to Trinidad Colorado and got snowed on very heavily going over the Raton Pass. Both of us liked that, but Ray didn't want to drive too long in the snow. Luckily it stopped by late afternoon, before we had to catch the train back home.
The food on the train isn't that bad either. The staff are very friendly and you can get up an move around. I really do like it better than flying.
