We're taking a year off to travel! travel blog


Bo was going to Mountainair to get a haircut today, so it was suggested we go with and would drive over to Quarai, part of the Salinas Pueblo Missions ruins. Last time we were here we visited the ruins at Abo. All of these were quite large, and although only a small part of the surrounding pueblo has been excavated, the missions themselves were impressive. The one here at Quarai features the most complete Salinas church. It was interesting to imagine what it would have been like to live here. We all enjoyed the ¾ mile loop around the ruins, not only for the views, but also for the foliage. There were many choke cherry bushes. Don had to sample the berries, so we all did. But he was the only one who really enjoyed them (he said.)

Bo grilled steaks for dinner, and I made an apple pie from the apples I got from Agnes in Canon City. Delicious!
