Here is a picture taken late evening from my home on Nighthawk Trail on the Mesa above Taos.  Again, this is a prime example of the "light" that attracts so many artists to the area.  Can you see the face on the mountain?  Rumor has it that if you can't see the face you won't make it here!!!  It ...

When I first moved to Taos, New Mexico almost 10 years ago I was charmed by the adobe homes dotting the terrain.  There is so much romance in living in an adobe house.  Mud formed adobes are just so earthy, right?  I soon found out that there were several construction methods that produced an "ad...
