It's that time of year when #alpenglow lights up the mountains during #sunrise! #ElNino is kicking in, it's been a great start to Winter and more snow is coming next week.

#Bike season never really ends in Taos, it just takes some #powderdays off once in a while! The views from the #trails are pretty awesome especially when #TaosMountain and Vallecito are #snowcapped.

This picture is from our friends @gearingupbikestaos, they're open Monday through Saturday and have great information about the local trails, all the gear you need including maps, and #rentalbikes available daily.

The peak is looking awesome with some fresh snow! Pretty good start to the season, and the forecast is promising more snow in the near future.

Across the snow covered Mesa Sea, your outdoor adventure awaits in the steep canyons and mystical valleys of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.

We got some snow last night, the countdown to #ski and #snowboard season is on!

It's snowing pretty good up here, #AutumnColors are still popping and the high peaks are snowcapped. The next few days will be awesome for a hike. Bring your camera, and fuel up with a 🍕 at the #PizzaShack!

Ogled from the #LongCanyonTrail in #TaosSkiValley. Who else is itching to see it all covered in at least 200” of snow?😉 Meteorologists have predicted a few flakes this week. 🤞

Thirty years ago archaeologists discovered over 500 culturally peeled #ponderosapine trees in the Warm Springs area of the Camino Real Ranger District. These living artifacts have provided important information about ancient land use patterns and traditional plant uses

If Trees Could Talk: #PeeledTrees in the Picuris Mountains, will focus on an innovative ethnographic approach to peeled tree research done by Patricia Corral in the 1990s. Join us and find out what Jicarilla Apache, Hispano and Picuris elders shared about this amazing resource

Ms. Corral, #CarsonNationalForest Assistant Archaeologist will be the featured speaker for the Carson National Forest presentation on Thursday October 11, to be held at the main Carson National Forest office at 208 Cruz Alta Rd in Taos, NM from 5:00pm to 6:00pm

#Longhorn is looking nice with the #AutumnColors reaching their peak! All week should be great for some authentic #NewMexicoGold leaf viewing. Tonight's full moon will lighten up the night, and there's a chance for some high elevation snow tomorrow night! Got us thinking of all the talk about #ElNino developing this winter

Have you ever been on a #fullmoon hike in the mountains? It's pretty amazing seeing the slopes at night nearly bright as day. Meet tomorrow night September 24th at 8:15pm at the #WilliamsLake hiker parking trailhead if you'd like to join a guided hike to the lake. The weather looks to be good with intermittent clouds, bring your headlamp and dress warm, there's a cold front coming through Tuesday with a chance of snow in the higher elevations Tuesday night!

It's really starting to glow up here! Some of the #aspens are showing their full #autumncolors, it looks like the peak is going be later this week. This is a great time of the year to hike the #wilderness trails or bring your #mountainbike for a ride @northsidetsv.  The #PizzaShack and #StrayDogCantina are open, fuel your #adventures and enjoy one of the best #margaritas in town afterwards!

#Autumn colors are popping along the #EnchantedCircle! This incredible scenic drive makes for a great half day trip, circling the mountains around #TaosSkiValley which is right in the middle. The side trip to #WildRivers is always worth it for awesome views of the #RioGrandeGorge
