New Mexico is so hot and bright that the earth colors are radiant as in the adobe homes made of rich clay for over a 1000 years. Taos Pueblo is at the heart of history and it's charming, peaceful and colorful. The Taos Pueblo history hit me hard and for the first time in my Native American life, I felt a connection and a value. My friend felt a very strong spiritual connection and between the two of us we had a very interesting experience. To watch the children playing in the stream nearby was like going back in time. It was so beautiful.
