What do I need for a trip to New Mexico

taos new mexico
bluebell asked:

I’ve been there a few times, however it’s only been to the southern half (Carlsbad, Roswell) One of the times we did labor for all of the day, so I wasn’t really concerned with what I needed to bring.

This time we are flying into Albuquerque and driving that day to Santa Fe. The next morning we are driving to Taos. This is where I’m confused: It’s New Mexico, yet at an elevation of 9,000 feet. Super hot (closer to sun) or chilly?

Also my parents are going to be in meetings all day, so I have 9 days to roam by myself. Any suggestions on what to bring or what to do?

Thank you

Is there more wealth in Dubai than in all of the wealthiest areas of LA / So Cal Combined?

santa fe vacation
CentralCalSurfer asked:

I returned recently from a vacation in Dubai and was shocked at how wealthy, cosmopolitan, and modern it was (as well as how fast it is growing). At least 60 percent of the city appears to be under construction, with most projects running well over $20 Billion and as for the 1.6 million people (only a fraction of the total population of LA) that live there, they all seem to have immense wealth. Every car is either a Ferarri, Porsche (I have never seen so many Porsche Chayennes in one place), BMW, Audi, Mercedes, or Bentley. There is not a single sign of a middle or a lower class exisiting in the area. The amount of money there (most of which doesn’t actually come from oil!) seems to be more than all of the money of Beverly Hills, Malibu, Hollywood, Rancho Santa Fe, La Jolla, Bel Aire, Santa Monica, or Newport Beach combined. There is so much money there that they are even constructing artificial islands (each costing $30 Million) in the shape of palm trees and one of the entire world!

Perki88 asked:

Sometime in March I want to follow the sun and take a US photo vacation. I’m thinking Savannah Georgia, Phoenix Arizona, Nashville Tennessee or Santa Fe New Mexico. What is worth photographing in those areas? Any other suggestions?

Question for experienced Santa Fe skiers?

santa fe vacation
k-9fanatic asked:

We are going on a vacation to Santa Fe to ski for the first time like in Feb or March 08 and I want to bring my Labrador Retriever with. I have quite a few questions though.

1. What is a good accomodation near the slopes that is dog friendly? Is there an extra charge for her?
2. Are dogs allowed on the slopes? Is there an extra charge for her?
3. When we are not skiing, our dogs allowed to walk through the city with us?
4. What about outdoor restaurants?
5. What about shops and stores?
6. Is there a good dog park or dog walk area near the slopes?
7. What other things can you do in Santa Fe with your dog?

I told you I had a lot of questions. Basically, I would like you to give me all the info you have on dogs in Santa Fe. Thanks a lot!
