Taos Snowflake


I spent an early New Years Eve in the Taos Ski Valley. They had a Torchlight parade down one of the ski slopes followed by a fireworks show. This is the area where some of the ski shops and a few of the lodges are.

Fiestas que se nos acaban ya mismo, entre el blanco de la nieve.

Saludos y un abrazo.

Sounds fabulous Randy. Both David and Aimee have been skiing at Thredbo in the Snowy Mountains and loved it! Me, I'd break something for sure!!

Taos is really amazing. We had the opportunity to drive there when we visited Santa Fe. On a whim, we decided we wanted to see the gorge and drove through a hail storm to get there. Quite the experience but glad we did it.

You have put in my mind a great image of that parade coming down a ski slope! What fun!

Very nice night shot here, too.

Have a great 2012 Randy!

A wonderful Holiday scene. As you go down the street seems each snowflake has a different shape, just as in real life.

That is a lovely scene, Randy. Taos would have been a good place to take a break.

Such a nice scene. I think a lighted snowflake might be the only one we would see here in KY!
