New Mexico II: Arroyo Seco, Rio Grande, Ted Egri and Taos
The second day, Saturday, November 8th, we started our trip to Arroyo Seco and had breakfast at Abe's. The Holy Trinity Church at Arroyo Seco was the only church that we were allowed to photograph the interior during our entire trip. We then drove to Rio Grande Bridge to really have a taste of the open country of New Mexico. We came back to Taos old town plaza to hang around various art galleries and had lunch. The high light of the afternoon was the visit to 96 year-old artist,Ted Egri. His wife Janet gave us a good tour of his studio and sculpture park, and an overview of his life. It was really interesting and impressive. We end the day photographing moon rise at Saint Francis of Assisi church at Rancho de Taos. Here you can see our photographs of the day.
