Turquoise Haven

Artist's Description

Taken at Taos Pueblo, where the clean air keeps the skies so blue and the puffy clouds float like pillows.

These adobe homes are still functional today, and are believed to have been built well over 1000 years ago.

The mound type things you see are ovens, and called a horno. They are mostly used to make bread and pastries. A cedar fire is built to heat the adobe oven (horno), then the ashes are removed and the bread is placed inside to bake. You see these a lot at other pueblos, as well as Taos.
