works06 > TAOS PUEBLO - 10.5.06, Taos, New Mexico

A few miles north of Taos town is the Pueblo, home now to about 150 people. Parts of the Pueblo are more than 1,000 years old and it's the oldest continuously inhabited structure in the U.S. No electricity (propane lights, stoves, refrigerators), no running water - many of the lower level rooms around the center are arts & crafts shops selling Taos wares. We visited twice. The first time was a harvest celebration (10/7) with the center plaza packed with several thousand onlookers and no cameras. The second time with Betsy & George and a dozen or so other visitors.
