The fall season is upon us and there have been numerous sightings of bears. And, these aren’t the bears that wear hats or bow ties. I have had friends encounter bears from Williams Lake to the Weimar area.
Bears are preparing for hibernation so don’t leave birdseed, food garbage etc. out for them. And, to protect yourself out hiking or on early morning treks - Taos Mountain Outfitters does sell bear spray and bear bells. Both are used for different purposes. The spray will protect you if you have a face to face encounter and the bells will just make noise so you won’t startle a bear.
PLEASE – read the label on bear spray before going on a hike. Do not use the spray near a dog. This is a beautiful time of the year – so enjoy!

This is an exciting time for The Good Sole – as I told you in the last blog we are expanding and will re-open Taos Mountain Outfitters on December 10 (tomorrow—YIKES!)
We are excited to be part of the Taos Plaza community. The Plaza area – with its unique architecture and history – has continued to attract visitors from all over. But we are also excited to continue to serve our local community which has been very supportive of us.
I have been asked what will be the same – and what will be different – when you enter TMO tomorrow. Well, the beer cans ( do you know how many there are?) are still there – but we have increased our apparel and accessories and offer many items in a variety of categories from travel items to hats to scarves to socks, etc. from vendors such as The North Face, Columbia, Marmot, Horny Toad, Royal Robbins, Smartwool, etc. We want to be THE place in Taos for outdoor items.
Vicki Mageria – who I wrote about in my last blog – has been busy getting the shop ready with the help of Greta Burke, John Ivers, Ariana Reyes, and Nanette Valle.
So be sure to stop in and say hi – and let us know what you think. We really want your input! And make sure you register to win some great prizes that have been donated by our vendors and by some of our gracious community businesses – El Monte Sagrado, Substance, and The Gorge Grill

Many of you may have heard that we are expanding and …yes, its true!
We are in the process of taking over 114 S. Plaza and re-opening the store as the new Taos Mountain Outfitters. Our focus will be on outdoor/lifestyle apparel, footwear and accessories.
Vicki Mageria, who joined us this summer as our outdoor/running specialist, will be the manager. Joining Vicki will be current employees Annie Stewart, Ariana Reyes, and John Ivers.
Good Sole fans do not fear! The Good Sole will remain at is current location at Martinez Plaza and will continue to be the headquarters for comfortable feet in Taos. Don Feinberg will continue on as manager and Annie, Ariana, John and myself will be here to assist in your footwear needs.
This is an exciting time for us and for Taos. We look forward to seeing you at both locations and getting your feedback on what we need to offer our local community.
We will be opening the new store next month. Stay tuned for more details!
