Many shows, exhibits, native dance performers, etc will be part of your Taos Dwelling Experience.
Night 2 will be again, around the campfire --- our group will have the opportunity to individually go horseback riding (1 hour and 15 minutes) or pile on the hay rack to the campfire and enjoy a game of western horse shoes or a loosely organized cowboy roping competition.. A unique “Cowboy” Western Style Meal will be served followed by a traditional cowboy poet for your entertainment. After the bonfire we'll return to the condominiums for night 2 of our stay.
On Day 3 relax a little later with a mid-morning late breakfast/brunch. There will be time to swim, hike, play tennis, mini golf, or even a high altitude 9-hole executive golf (extra fee) etc. We will have a group coordinator from the resort community along with a shuttle van to get to a variety of off-site activities as students choose what they want to participate in. A late check-out has been arranged and typically a 1:30 departure is combined with a little “Red River” shopping on the motor coach ride back home.
