VROC awards dinner

Last night.  Visiting before the group dinner

Enchilada dinner

The "ever young" Barbara Foree.  As you can see, we had a good time.  Joe and Susan did an outstanding job of organizing this rally.  I imagine they are glad it over! :-)  

Taos to Holbrook

Big Dawgs in Espenola.  Angelina's Wasn't open yet.  We left Taos at  5:55 AM  Don (Pennmaker) is riding with us

Lanny about to get his head pinched

Outstanding breakfast.  The ham was about 3/4 inch thick!  And fresh made thick flour tortillas

A lake.  We rode mostly on 2 lane roads. Don left us somewhere along the way, since he wanted to get  down to I-40.  We ended up going as far as Holbrook.  I didn't take too many pictures today.  I did get bitten by a dog at a stop in the Reservation.  I had just commented to Lanny about what a nice big old dog he was. I sort of forgot about him, but when I started to get on the bike, must have startled him, so he bit me on the calf.  Couple holes in my leg.  I rode a few miles then stopped and put some antibiotic cream on it.  All's well.  One more day until we get home.

24 June. Rides....

The WiFi doesn't work in the rooms.  It's not much better in the lobby, but eventually you can get a weak signal
Town Plaza.  Dances, couple of bands, food vendors, looks like people were having fun

Walmart parking lot, Taos

Friday morning. Rogue, Skid and Coyote.

Our first stop near the Rio Grande.  Lanny is leading this morning.

Some of us got a little ahead of the rest of the group,  Steven (Rogue) is going out to find them.

Everyone is together again,  Except Rogue :-)

Ready to move to the next destination

The Northern Rio Grande Gorge

The line up

It's a long way down.  Jim Sigelaar is a few yards down the trail.  He's leaving some of Cat's ashes here over the River

At full zoom

We stopped at another location, the Rio Grande Bridge.  There are lots of Native American vendors here selling their items 

Piper gave this hat to Sandy 10 years ago.  She uses it in the cold Canadian Winter. And in the hot New Mexican Summer
