Still on a leaf peeping quest, we decided to take the High Road to Taos, cut across the bottom of the Enchanted Circle to Angel Fire and then back to Santa Fe. It would take most of the day.
The aspens were spectular.
Upon reaching Angel Fire, we visited the Vietnam Veterans Memorial State Park. It had its origins in a battle near Con Thein, South Vietnam in which 16 men lost their lives in an ambush. Among the men, was David Westphall, son of Victor and Jeanne Westphall. Through their vision this memorial exists today not only to honor their son and others killed that day, May 22, 1968, but all members of America’s armed forces. Thank you for your service. ~ Indy and Lucy
