Bavarian Inn

Bavarian Inn

Bavarian Inn

Taking the mountain road north out of Arroyo Seco, NM the scenery changes dramatically.  A sign read, “Entering Carson National Forest”, the road became steeper, my ears popped, and I thought I was in the Colorado Rockies.

Climbing steadily and winding around the mountain for eight miles, we reached Taos Ski Valley Resort.  Any further up the mountain required a 4-wheel drive vehicle.  It was sunny and dry, so I figured my AWD Honda could make it a little further.  Another two miles was the end of the road; the last ski lift and the Bavarian Inn with a great view of Wheeler Peak, tallest peak in New Mexico at 13,161 feet.

The Bavarian Inn is about as authentic as you can get; i.e. the food, beer and traditional dress of the wait staff.  Think lederhosen.  I had jager schnitzel and some great German beer.  The bad news was now we had to drive down the mountain.
