Saturday, April 8th – Walking Tour in Los Alamos and on to El Fuerte – Gateway to the Copper Canyon
A two and a half hour walking tour through the historic colonial city of Los Alamos gave us some good insight about this area.
“(Los Alamos) a designated National Monument. Its elaborate mansions, restored to their original glory, date back to a bygone era when the silver mines here were among the richest in the world.” – Gate 1
Following lunch we piled back on our bus and headed toward El Fuerte, the “Gateway to the Copper Canyon”.
A brief walking tour of El Fuerte before dinner gave us a chance to stretch our legs after our long afternoon ride. Then dinner at the hotel followed by a performance of traditional folk and native dances.
UPDATE: Just added a little clip of the dancers.
Overnight: El Fuerte
GRATITUDE MOMENT: Today I am grateful for really comfortable walking shoes. When your feet hurt, you hurt all over. I’m so glad I don’t have that problem!
