I woke up Erin when I got hungry because we had plans to eat breakfast at Michael's Kitchen, one of Taos's best restaurants for breakfast. To continue the New Mexican theme, I ordered Huevos Rancheros with green chilis and hash browns and Erin had the Breakfast Enchilada with green chilis. She sat in front of a picture window, so it was hard to concentrate on what she was saying with the view behind her.

Around 4 pm, Erin easily talked me into a hike along the Rio Grande Gorge. The day was a gorgeous one. We didn't hike very far, but far enough to sit on a bench dedicated to Keri & Amy (whoever they are) where I got a video of the gorge and the surrounding countryside.

Our dinner choice was the Gorge Bar & Grille which is on the Taos Plaza. I ordered a margarita "old school" style, in which they do not put that American sweet & sour shit. It is just tequila, orange liquor, and a half fresh squeezed lime. Thank you very much! I had a green chili grilled cheese with a black bean soup and Erin had a club sandwich.
That was our last hoorah in Taos. That evening we packed and cleaned the place up for a 5:30 am departure. We had a great time and look forward to visiting again when her folks are actually down there. I really like fact that I will have a place to ski and snowboard on a regular basis!
