The Stories We Could Tell

Welcome to Taos Pueblo

We had a quick stopover in Taos on our way from Santa Fe to Durango. We heard a lot about the Taos Pueblo, so we knew we had to check it out. The Pueblo is thought to be the oldest continuously inhabited community in the US. That’s right… the Pueblo is still inhabited today. The tribal members live in adobe structures with no running water or electricity, just as they did over 1,000 years ago. This is the largest collection of multistory pueblo dwellings in the US. It was a very interesting to see, but we were quite surprised by the commercialization of the pueblo. We were constantly reminded that “tipping is customary” for everything from the gentleman who points you to your parking spot to the tribal member that you snap a photo of. We paid $5 just to be able to bring our camera in, so we hope you like our shots!

PS… J and I think that the Pueblo may have some super healing powers. As you may have read he was suffering from an “old man injury” and could barely walk when we got there… he was walking beautifully by the time we left. Thank you medicine man.

  1. Pictures are beautiful and worth the $5. I had heard the pueblos were becoming more commercialized but it is sad, isn’t it. Can’t wait to hear about your trip to Durango and beyond. Love you.
