Taos in the winter

 My son Eric and I decided to take a little trip to Taos, NM. We are staying with Eric's friends Bob and Martha Felt. Bob and Martha own Redwing Books, publishers of Eric's Concise Materica Medica and his Clinician's Guide to Using Granule Extracts. Martha also has goats, chickens, ducks, turkeys, and a huge garden. She is a fabulous cook and so Eric and I have been treated to some delicious meals using homegrown ingredients. Yummm.

Bob and Martha live just outside of Taos and have an exquisite view of the mountains to the east and the entire Rio Grande valley to the west.

  It's been sunny and very cold outside, but warm and toasty inside.

Taos was discovered by Spanish conquistadors in 1540 but it had already been settled by the Tiwa Indians around 1350 AD. We visited the Taos Pueblo a few months ago.

This time, I visited the Spanish mission church of St. Francis of Assisi
 

 
 
We visited the Rio Grande Gorge which was created by a separation of tectonic plates,
 
 And the Earthship community outside of Taos which features unique solar homes built using only natural and recycled materials.
