The Red River – Taos County

Red River in Taos County. The Red River was the most anticipated ‘Solve’ for this first trip out.  It was just not in the cards and I’ll explain why.  First though, I was able to get a good night’s sleep and made it to the El Aguage Campground and the trail leading down to the Red River by just after 9:15A this morning.  Miraculously, I met up with John from San Diego that is also an avid hiker, although, he’s in much better shape.  I was not only fortunate to have him look out for me but he did discuss his recent visit to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial by Eagle Nest Lake (on tomorrow’s agenda).  John had the same exact rental car (Black Buick Verano) as I have.  

Even though I left the area empty handed, the Red River was breathtakingly beautiful and I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to spend time at this sacred place.

Tesuque Creek – North of Sante Fe

Tesuque Creek in New Mexico. According to recent online research, a quick drive from Santa Fe brings me to picturesque Hyde Memorial State Park and the Tesuque Creek .  This area offers lower-elevation vegetation, including pinyon-juniper and oak-pine belts. The creek is easily accessed; its water provides welcome relief on hot summer days.  What’s more important, is a short drive up Hwy 475 out of Santa Fe brings me to Hyde Memorial State Park and the Little Tesuque Falls.  In this area along the highway, is an impact crater that was first discovered in 2005.  All of it holds promise as a potential location for Forrest Fenn’s treasure.
