The Tapestry of Taos Artisans

  Category: Taos Day Tours, Travel Inspirations, Traveling in New Mexico   |     Comments: 3

Wandering the streets of downtown Taos we walk on imperfect roads where many artists have walked before. Roads full of wondrous stories where the famous, infamous, and little known have already treaded. Every crack in the sidewalk is a sign that someone of significance walked this way and it’s what makes Taos’ art colony completely…

What I mean is the wild at heart within me, tugging on my soul to travel deeper towards this earth. The mother earth who…

This morning was one of the most magnificent crimson red sunrises out our window, without effort the sky took on an emotive form as I watched in the silence of dawn.

Reverence in the Ruins

Early Tuesday morning I set out from Old Town Albuquerque north towards Chaco Canyon. The skies were dramatic and overcast with beams of light penetrating the mesas, buttes and plateaus so poetically it was hard not to stop and photograph every couple of miles. The landscape was abundant with color from the brick-red Chinle formation…

I can’t say how many moments of inspiration traveling I’ve had in this past week. Sharing Taos and all of it’s vast, diverse and calico colors infused with layers of basalt, sand, volcanic tuff, mountains, rivers, water, sage and sanctuary. I spent two days immersed in Ra Paulette’s earth caves that evoke mystery, spirit, and…

Clearly the monsoon rains had already unleashed their abundance across the wild mesa of sagebrush, the aroma was glorious and almost ancient. I felt…
