Angelisa Murray, Owner & Guide

I can remember the first adult road trip I took to Taos in my early 20’s. Even back then I felt something spiritual about the land. The dramatic skies seemed to evoke a Heritage Inspirationssensation out of me that longed to become intimate with the mystery that seemed evident in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. I spent over a decade of my life as an active travel guide exploring and wandering all over the world, and yet no matter where I went, New Mexico called to me. I spent a few years living in the quirky and quaint towns saturated by unforgettable characters in Pecos, Madrid, Santa Fe and now Taos.  This is my home, and after spending years excavating and learning from this wild place of heritage, culture and natural wonder there is no greater inspiration to me than to share it. This region of New Mexico is the root of my heritage. Just north of Taos my Espinoza lineage starts in southern Colorado in the San Luis Valley and extends throughout northern New Mexico. In Taos there are two street signs that cross with my grandparents surnames, Espinoza and Maestas reminding me how blessed I am to share in this culturally rich land as apart of my family lineage that is now apart of me. I would love to host you on an authentic experience and creative sojourn here in New Mexico. I look forward to sharing many of the secrets of this colorfully dynamic, diverse and multicultural state!
