How a Visit to Santa Fe New Mexico Just Might Change Your Life
No matter where in the world I travel – from Amsterdam to Tasmania – when I say I’m from Santa Fe, people light up with recognition of the name. Some have visited here and seen first hand our unique Pueblo-style architecture, visited some of our more than 200 art galleries, wandered our meandering, European-like lanes, delighted in our multi-cultural festivals, skied or hiked our mountains, eaten green chili, and experienced the quality of the light made famous by generations of artists.

Taos Is Where the Heart Stays

Just a little property, they tell you, something for an investment, the prices are quite reasonable now. Next thing you know they've built a house-maybe just a little house, a ski cabin-or maybe an adobe mansion. What is it about Taos, New Mexico, that calls us so seductively?

New Mexico: it’s too personal to me
I can’t explain to you how the stars look here or make me feel, or that they are so close that you can reach out and take one home with you. I cannot accurately describe the crisp, clear, cold mountain water; how it tastes, how it feels. The absolute ultimate thrill of jumping in a mountain pool and losing near all feeling until your senses return and rejoice in what you have done. I cannot describe the gentle yarrow growing on top of Wheeler Peak as it stands our highest crown in all its majestic beauty.

The Rio Grande Gorge and the Geology that Formed It

The Tao of Taos Pueblo
(Taos, New Mexico) In Chinese philosophy, the tao is the natural process through which all things change, a process necessary to a harmonious life.

Are the two words related?
