Above is a "Taos Burger": crispy green chiles, BBQ sauce, and cheddar. Also, deep fried jalapeno slices and pickle spears with green chile mayo in which to dip them. Absolutely divine.
In New Mexico I had to tuck my gun burkha back behind the butt of my pistol since, while they do not honor my Hoosier toter's permit, they have no problem with unlicensed open carry. Jay G was in similar straits in Colorado.
A minor annoyance, since most people just plain don't notice, but there's the occasional lingering stare at your hip from a cashier or uninvited conversation from some goof who wants to know if you're a cop or not. Thankfully things were idjit-free on this vacation.
