P and Meg kindly invited me to join them on a little north country adventure this weekend: a night of camping north of Taos. It was FABULOUS.
We left Albaturkey at 8:30ish and drove straight to Taos Sunflower, my new favorite yarn store. P is a good man, let me tell you. It was his idea!!! This is a great store- tons of fabulous yarns, tons of fabulous colors, all CLEARLY PRICED and DISPLAYED SO YOU COULD SEE EVERYTHING. Novel concept, I know, but IT WORKS. Wonderful little store! Pictures of my acquisition later...
Then we drove to a super secret campground that was mostly deserted, except for our middle aged frat boy neighbors, who blessedly passed out fast. The view from our camp site:
Yes, we were camped on the edge of the Rio Grande Gorge. Spectacular.
We had a mellow afternoon of reading, knitting, and a little walking. It was fab.
The Chef P flexed his culinary muscles and cooked up an amazing dinner of chicken fajitas. MMMMMMMMMMMMM. I don't cook this well in my fully stocked kitchen, people!
Then we made s'mores over the campfire. Turns out Meg and I have something in common: we're both scorchers. Stick that smallow in the fire and let it burn, baby!!!! We like our marshmallows charred and crispy
I have a great shot of P munching on a smore, but I want to get permisison before posting it here.
Sunday morning we got up and hiked down to the river and back. A wee bit more athletic than I normally partake of, but mostly enjoyable nonethless.
That's all I have time for now. Tomorrow: Part 2 of Food, Fiber, Fun! and stash enhancement!
