The Road Trip: New Mexico

Earthship house in Taos - made from recycled materials

Coming out of Arizona we pushed onwards to Santa Fe, New Mexico.. a fascinating community of artists, spiritualists, millionaires and Navajo Natives.  North of Santa Fe is the small town of Taos, famous art community up here as well as world class skiing and Spanish style Pueblos everywhere.  The Rio Grande channels through the landscape and cuts a deep gorge into the high desert just outside of town which is absolutely beautiful.  The area had  a strange energy flowing through it although very quiet and peaceful there was a lot happening in town.

D.H. Lawrence had his ashes scattered here + some celebrities have homes in the area including Julia Roberts & Dennis Hopper .. the only disturbing person I found out that lives here part-time  is Donald Rumsfeld (ahh!!).

Check out these photos of the area!
