The High Road to Taos Scenic Byway is a lovely, winding road through the Sangre de Cristo Mountains between Santa Fe and Taos. It offers magnificent vistas of snow-capped peaks, alpine meadows, and charming traditional Spanish and Pueblo villages.


This lovely scenery has inspired many artists and artisans who live along the High Road, some of whom are featured in this travel blog: We welcome you to come, explore, and help sustain the rural economy of this charming, centuries-old region. Always the last two weekends of September, the 2015 High Road Art Tour takes place September 19, 20, 26, & 27.
