I had the opportunity to visit the breathtaking Acoma Pueblo. I think it is superior to the more famous Taos Pueblo. It is well maintained and sits on a shear cliff mesa over 360 feet above the valley floor. Our Acoma guide Brandon provided an exceptional history of the pueblo and the interventions by the Spanish beginning in the 16th century. He was entertaining and very knowledgeable. The people of the pueblo were very hospitable and friendly and proudly offered their unique crafts of pottery, stone carvings, jewelry, and fresh baked goods for sale. Be sure to try the hot freshly made "fry bread' for a tasty snack. You must take the bus to the site but can return by foot by climbing down the walls and footpaths if you are in good physical condition.
