Taos Pueblo

One of the best things about the Taos trip was a visit to the Taos Pueblo.  I don't know what it was, maybe the the mountains, the people, the mystical feel of the place. It's just so hard to describe. Maybe peaceful is the right word for a place of beauty.

The Taos Pueblo is over 1000 years old and while over 100 families still abide by the old cultures and rules, most have moved out to find jobs and a better way of living. The few families who still live there, still retain their cultural heritage. All the homes have no running water or electricity, people still hunt in the mountains for food, and corn is a major staple.


  1. Wow!
    Your pictures are really stunning and I'm glad you guys had such a wonderful time.
    I hope the new job is going well. Glad you're back. Missed you! :)

  2. I want to go here so, so badly! I even started making a little version out of some recycled packing material. You have captured some beautiful images that only make me want to go more!
