Next, off we headed on the Enchanted Circle where the scenery was beautiful. We traveled counter-clockwise and, according the GPS, our altitude topped out at 9,139 ft. on the outward journey to Eagle's Nest. In the 9 years I've her, my airplane has only been that high a few times! Lunch was at Kaw-Lija's in Eagle's Nest. Lin just had a hamburger but I was wise enough to take the waitress' advice on the sliced brisket BBQ sandwich. It alone was worth the trip! At this point, we left the Enchanted Circle and headed east to Cimarron. We stopped at the visitor info office and got a ton of info. Because it was after 4, we first drove though Cimarron itself and stopped at the museum and then at the trading post at Philmont Scout Ranch and bought a t-shirt for Julian. After continuing a bit further south on NM 21 to an overlook for some pictures, we returned to the older section of Cimarron for a walk around and a visit to the St.
Back in Taos, I dashed over to Kit Carson Park adjacent to the hotel to grab some pictures of Carson's grave, then we got ready for dinner at Lambert's. Lin had chicken stuffed with spinach and goat cheese while I had a phenomenal filet mignon of buffalo. A perfect end to a perfect day. A major change from yesterday!
