With an out-of-town business trip this week thrown into the mix of my life, I haven’t had a chance to prepare a news-filled post. So how about another charming scene from the Taos Pueblo to tide you over in the meantime?
Here is an interesting fact. At one time, there were no doorways in these adobe complexes. The only entryway into the homes was by ladder through openings in the rooftops. An added bonus is that these entrances provide light. The reason behind this original design was to provide security. If intruders to the Pueblo were discovered to be approaching, the ladders were pulled up from the ground levels to the rooftops.
