Taos Pueblos

We arrived at the Taos Pueblo in the late afternoon (4pm and it closes to the public at 5pm) and only had one hour to shoot pictures and shop.  Bought some art and jewelry from the pueblo artists. 
Wandering so late in the day when they are about to close the entrance to the public, you almost feel as if you're intruding in their private time.  A lot of cars began to arrive near 4:30 and 5:00, time for them to come home. 
They live and work out of their adobe homes and each room has it's own little adobe fireplace which keeps the little rooms toasty warm.  Most of them have dirt floors but for the living areas in the back, some have laid down pieces of linoleum and/or have hand woven rugs. 
The adobe ovens for baking bread out front of each home in the compound.
We bought a little souvenir gift for our grandson from this nice lady's shop.
Friendly dogs were lazying in the sun or running up to me to be petted.
