Day 75 - WetworldNovember 21, 2016 in the United States
Today was the wettest day of the trip so far. Luckily, our main plan for today involved driving, the destination being Taos.
There is an impressive Native American Pueblo that we hoped to see whilst using the town as a stop of point on the way to Durango. However, the light rain for most of the drive turned into a heavy pouring as soon as we arrived at Taos. We thought we'd hanker down in the hotel room for a couple of hours and wait and see if the rain would stop. In the meantime we caught up with the HBO series Westworld and saw episode eight. Although not our first choice for entertainment today, it is a fantastic series and is building up nicely.
With all hope of doing anything outdoors dashed, we went to the nearest restaurant for dinner. The Burger Stand was opposite and we made a quick dash for it. A Chilli Cheese Burger for Alice and a Catfish Po'boy for me with plenty of Cajun Fries. We were soon feeling much better. Back at the motel we continued to watch TV and later in the evening we peeked a look out the window and the rain had turned to snow. Enough was falling to settle on the cars but the ample rain earlier ensured it melted on most of the ground. There was only one thing for it. We popped over to the reception, collected mugs of hot chocolate and cookies, made our way back to our room, and continued to watch yet more TV.
