An armchair visit to northern New Mexico via the High Road to Taos. A visually exciting trip through the small and colorful Hispanic villages along this ancient trail - Native American pueblos, mission churches, mystical valleys and mountains!

A Path Unknown

Long, long ago, after moving to New Mexico, I discovered the mystery and fascination of back roads - some led to quiet pastures, and some to old churches, capillas, ghost towns-- old crumbling buildings, broken fences -- signs of lives having lived in another time-- places where all you can hear is the wind and perhaps the whisper of birds' wings as they pass by overhead.......these roads always seem to appear at the beginning of one's journey....... Enjoy!

about Archival Fine Art Giclee

"I have an idea that some men are born out of their due place. Accident has cast them amid certain surroundings, but they have always a nostalgia for a home they know not. They are Strangers in their birthplace. Sometimes a man hits upon a place to which he feels he mysteriously belongs. Here is the home he sought, and he will settle among scenes that he has never seen before, among men he has never known, as though they were familiar to him from his birth. Here at last he finds rest."

W. Somerset Maugham
THE MOON AND SIXPENCE

Forward and backward I have gone, and for me it has been an immense journey........ Perhaps there is no meaning in it at all, the thought went on inside me, save that of journey itself, so far as men can see. It has altered with the chances of life, and the chances brought us here; but it was a good journey -- long, perhaps -- but a good journey under a pleasant sun. Do not look for the purpose.
