2. Lunch at The Bavarian or 192Get ready to get your hands dirty and get up close and personal with Taos’s unique geography.

With over 300 days of annual sunshine, you can rock climb all year long and get panoramic views of the Southwest.
3. PM Scenic Chairlift RideEarthships have been described as “the epitome of sustainable design and construction.” These buildings may seem surreal and transcendental but they were consciously built with natural and reclaimed materials and use thermal and solar heating and cooling and solar and wind electricity. The people who call them home are happy to share their creations with visitors. Take a tour, or try sustainable living and stay for a night.
4. Tour of The Blake art collection
Between our legendary rivers and our hidden alpine lakes, Taos offers a variety of fishing experiences. You’ll find solitude and peace with nature in our waters, and not to mention a relief from the summer heat. This area is known for being abundant with a variety of trout, including Rainbow, Brown, and Brooks trout. You might even hook onto a Rio Grande Cutthroat trout, which are native to northern New Mexico and Southern Colorado.
