Taos Pueblo

 One of the most haunting and beautiful places I’ve ever been is the Taos Pueblo. Located in Northern New Mexico, it was discovered by the Spaniards in 1540. Looking much as it does today, it was by then probably 1000 years old, and archaeologists believe there have been people living in the Taos Valley since 3000 B.C. The pueblo is actually many separate homes, built side by side and in layers. The conical structures in front are the earthen ovens used for baking. Today about 1900 Taos Indians live on pueblo lands and call this ancient village “home”. If you ever  find yourself in N. New Mexico, don’t miss the chance to visit.

    Taos Pueblo is truly a magical place! A few years ago I saw an amazing deer dance there. This winter, I made it up for the buffalo dance. You really captured the feel!!
