How Taos Spells Relief

Eastern endpoint of NM 585, the relief route around Taos

NM 585 is also known as the US 64 bypass (or in New Mexican terms, relief route), connecting NM 68 at the west end and US 64 at the east end. Traffic going to and from the ski areas around Angel Fire can bypass going into Taos on US 64 by using NM 585. This photo was taken in May 2008 at the eastern endpoint of the route, looking west.
