to Taos

Not much time for detail today, so I'll simply say how very much we enjoyed our day in Taos today. This part of New Mexico is so appealing to people like us who love to see colour, life, eat well...

We began at Chimayo, where the Sanctuario is a place visited by hundreds of thousands of pilgrims.

Next into Taos itself, where the colours of A Common Thread drew us inside. Not only that, but whilst in there, we discovered that there was a sister store which focused on paper - guess where we went next? Papercloud was another beautifully designed store with lots of inspiring goods. (links later...)

After wandering around the town, enjoying lunch and discovering small corners of this lovely adobe town, we walked back to the car via this small artisans coop.

For a variety of reasons (heat heat heat) we decided against a visit to the Taos Pueblo and headed for the Millicent Rogers museum out of town.

Though we had never heard of this beautiful woman, we soon realised that she had a great eye for jewellery, weavings and pottery and her distinctive style was apparent in a breathtaking collection of exhibits. We loved it.



  • hello from Very chilly san fran !
    happy that you are enjoying your lovely & Warm (and yes, hot! ) vacation.
