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 our 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 2016 High Road Art Tour takes place September 17, 18, 24, & 25.

On both Sundays during the tour there will be farmers' markets set-up at Gaucho Blue in Penasco and at High Road Art Gallery in Truchas.

We will also have some farm locations open to the public throughout the two weekends.
