Hunting for 556

An item on the Hunt 556
was "gives out heat/smoke".  I had sketched the fireplace here some time ago so decided on one of the vent-less wall heaters.  My sketch stuff was in the car, so I used colored pencil and then used a Pilot ball point pen to give it a boost of detail.

 Number 4, gives out heat - wall heater

We went to Taos yesterday.  We thought we might get tickets to the Michael Hearne Barn Dance if we showed up there, but they were still sold out.  We visited the Fechin Art Museum.  Very interesting, he carved most of the wood that is in the house himself.  His wife was very short so he made the furniture very small.   His paintings are not strong, but interesting.

We then decided to make the Enchanted Circle tour and come back via Questa, Red River and Eagle Nest.  Beautiful drive that I have posted photos of many times.  Here are a few more just in case.

Near Questa.

St. Anthony's Church in Questa.  This is the one we were supposed to paint on the second day of the paint out.  I couldn't take the sun so painted in the shade of that big tree in the back and the houses across the street.  They did a beautiful restoration of the church.  I didn't take any photos that day or they didn't come out.  Hmmmm.

After Questa on the road to Red River.

Sunset as we got back to Angel Fire.  We couldn't decide where to eat so we came back to Angel Fire.  We had a drink at Zebs and then went for pizza at Angel Fired Pizza.

Ah, one of my favorite drives. The only part I don't like is driving out of Angel Fire up and over to Taos Canyon. Always makes me car sick. Beautiful photos though!

Bag Blog, the Enchanted Circle is a beautiful drive and not too long. It was too early to eat in Taos as we had a late breakfast at home. Started to go to Michael's Kitchen, then we decided on Arroyo Seco, still too early. Thought of the place in Questa that catered the lunch for the paint out gift exchange day, too early. Then to early for anything in Red River, we got there about 4 and most open at 430 or 5, so came back to Angel Fire. Had a drink at Zeb's and ate at El Jefe which used to be the Sunset Grill. Now I'm hungry just thinking about what we missed. Ha.
Thanks on the photos. I have posted similar ones since we do this almost every year. :)
