June 2012 was our second year to pack up our grandkids and head for Los Pinos, at the kids request. And once again, we experienced a delightful sojourn in the tender care of Alice and her family. Los Pinos provides a peaceful retreat into times past, from the log cabins with real chinking and beds covered with quilts and lots of blankets to the old family piano (very much in tune) in the parlor, where our granddaughter's held nightly recitals. But old time cooking was never this good.....Alice knows her way around a kitchen! We had several repeat requests from last year's menu....Alice's excellent rendition of Julia Child's sumptuous baked chicken with sauce and her own delectable run cake. Feel free to bring your own bottle of wine to enjoy at dinner. Wake up to the ring of the cow bell, calling you to a full breakfast of eggs any style or Alice's to-die-for 100% whole wheat pancakes with real maple syrup. We spent one day hiking up to a nearby cave. The next day found the seven of us mounted on neighboring Circle S Stables steeds for a picnic ride to one of the beautiful Pecos Wilderness mesas. ( Alice and her brother also have horses available for trail rides right from Los Pinos.) Sitting on our cabin porch with a glass of wine watching the chipmunks and children play after an active day was delightful, too!
