A somewhat late start for us today, what with work tasks and all.
Today we were headed to visit the nearby Vietnam Veterans Memorial State Park and a subsequent lunch in Taos after which we visited the nearby Rio Grande Gorge Bridge.
We rode the northern half of the Enchanted Circle, and while less twisty, it was in our opinion more scenic.
ScooterBob accompanied us as we toured the Vietnam Veterans Memorial museum. A very nicely done museum by the way, and its chapel was small but rather artistic in it's structure as you can see above and below.
I thought perhaps it would evoke a shape or message from an overhead view perhaps, but nothing comes to mind.
Saddling back up on Fiona, we headed to the village of Eagles Nest, spotting an American Bald Eagle in flight along the way, quite magnificent it was.
Martha and Fiona along the way to Taos
Next stop, the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge about seven miles to the west of Taos along State Highway 64.
Pictures at the bridge done with, we headed on back to Angel Fire, retracing our route along Highway 522 to Highway 30.
We did stop at the Lazy L Ranch's gate to photograph what we dubbed as "Nessie".
Moreno Valley Dragon
We got back to the RV park with no incidents, Fiona having done great once again and this time not having issue starting up in the morning. (We did have to wait till temperatures were warmer than yesterday morning which probably helped).
Update: found a youtube video with photos of the Moreno Valley Dragon:
