The Enchanted Circle — Spending Time in Red River

After a long drive from Trinity Site, through Santa Fe and Taos, and along the Enchanted Circle, we made Red River shortly before sunset.  One side of the main street was perfectly lighted by the low sun, as you can see here:

As we drove around trying to decide where to stay, we took a short side trip to the ski area adjoining town.

But the sun was going down fast, so photography soon ended.  Here’s an image of Red River as seen from our accommodations for the night:

Getting serious about a place to sleep we first tried one charming little lodge, but it was full.  We struck gold on our second attempt at the Riverside Lodge & Cabins.  And, while I’m not much for football, I did get to watch Clemson University take down Notre Dame.  Life was good.

For those interested in a charming place to stay on this journey, you can certainly do a lot worse.  Here are the accommodations, and the views:
