• Initially the plan was to hold this event at the Kachina Lodge, which had worked well for our 2oo8 and 2oo9 Forays. However, poor communication from, and other concerns about the Kachina, led the Foray Committee to seek a different venue. The committee chose instead the Sagebrush Inn, which became the new location of choice for NMMS' Taos Forays.
• Some participants at past Taos Forays had chosen to stay instead at the SnowMansion, which offers more rustic lodging, including campsites. It is located in Arroyo Seco, about 12 miles north of our Foray Headquarters at the Sagebrush, and about a 25 minute drive. It's not certain if any of the 2016 participants stayed at that location.

Foray Schedule
• Foray Ckeck-in was on Thursday, Aug 25, from 4-6pm and 7-8 pm.
• Participants were responsible for their own meals on Thursday.

• The Foray Committee encouraged folks visiting from lower altitudes to arrive early in order to acclimate to New Mexico elevations. (Taos sits at 7,000 feet, and Foray field trips can easily get above 10,000 ft.)
• The Foray Committee offered T-Shirts for sale. The price was undetermined at the time this page was posted, but the Registration Form did include a place to state registrant's size and reserve a shirt.
