We stopped to visit the Earthships outside Taos. These are completely off grid houses built of recycled materials that collect their own water, grow some of their own food, and maintain comfortable temperatures through the hot summers and snowy winters.
Bandelier National Monument
The monument preserves the homes and territory of the Ancestral Puebloans dating between 1150 and 1600 AD, though the area has had a human presense for more than 10,000 years.

Los Alamos, NM
About 1.25 million years ago, a spectacular volcanic eruption created the 13-mile wide circular depression now known as the Valles Caldera. The preserve is known for its huge mountain meadows, abundant wildlife, and meandering streams. The area also preserves the homeland of ancestral native peoples and embraces a rich ranching history.
