Rio Grande del Norte hiking trail
We saw a sign for a hiking trail for the southern area of Rio Grande del Norte National Monument along the highway as we were leaving Taos and we decided to stop. I was thrilled to find several wildflowers, many were new ones to me. This beautiful Indian Paintbrush was an old favorite!
