This past Saturday my guy and I took his little toy car (Honda S2000) out for a cruise through the mountains to the Pajarito Skiesta – an end-of-the-season brew fest of sorts. We wanted to make a fun day out of it so we took the top down and ventured down the scenic route, stopping at a few places along the way that we’d never visited before.
Our first stop was at the Ponderosa Valley Vineyard, we’d seen a billboard for it, didn’t know there were any vineyards in the area and after determining it wasn’t too far off the path, we stopped in for some tastings and chit chat.
The vineyard had all sorts of ribbons on the walls and though this raised my hopes before tasting, I wasn’t disappointed by the selection! We brought home a red and a white after sampling a few of their local creations.
We then traveled a tad off the beaten path to the Gilman Tunnels where we stopped to take some pictures and admire the scenery.
