As we're sure most of you are aware, New Mexico does currently have its largest ever forest fire burning in the far South West of the state, in the Gila National Park.
The good news is that every day the hard working fire crews and volunteers are slowly getting the fire under control. Overnight they were able to get another 8% of the fire contained, that's approximately another 21000 acres! That brings the fire to 30% contained.
More good news is that Taos is still unaffected by smoke and the most recent air quality test for Taos, puts our air at 8.2 out of 10! That means 82% of the States has worse air than us! Not too bad you'll agree. In fact, the air quality index puts most of New Mexico at a good level.
So don't let all the doom and gloom press reports put you off visiting an area that has so much to offer, come and grab some fresh air and enjoy the beautiful blue skies of New Mexico!
