Taos Pueblo

Adobe Under Approaching Rain
Summer afternoons in New Mexico usually mean thunderstorms. I went to Taos Pueblo in the morning, but the monsoon clouds caught up with me anyway. This thousand-year-old village recoats itself with adobe every year or two; each family is responsible for its own house within the historic compound. Even though Taos is a UNESCO World Heritage site, it is no museum; these are private homes of a small nation that has survived on its own land, farming and building continuously for at least a millennium...one of the few Native American peoples that has not been uprooted from its ancestral land.
