We went on the Big Arsenic Springs trail hike which was two miles round trip. It went down 680 feet from the rim to the Rio Grand. We hooked up and drove through Taos to the BLM Orilla Verde Recreation Area Rio Bravo campground on the banks of the Rio Grand. We had electric and water hookups with flush toilets and pay showers for only $7.50! We drove back into Taos and had beers at Eskes Brewpub. Then we looked around a Mexican/Indian shop and then had a New Mexican dinner at Orlandos Restaurant.
