Morning on Tsankawi


                ... walking on the bones of the anasazi / listening for stories

                                                                ... across the valley / ... snow falls on the pajarita plateau

                             ... morning on Tsankawi

  1. Lovely. I stayed at La Fonda for a few days, probably 20-some years ago. Just read about Tsankawi. Wish I had known about it back then. I was taking a class in Native American literature and spent some time focused on the Anasazi. (It's when I realized that Mother Nature is not always a bountiful and generous figure.) Still love pottery from places like.Santa Clara, San Ildefonso, etc.

    1. It's a beautiful old hotel. My first job in SF was at the Indian Shop there. I walked on those streets so many times ... good memories...

      I love the history ... and both of those pueblos do have some great artists. Love that black pottery from Santa Clara especially.

  2. I regret that when I lives in the southwest I didn't spend more time in New Mexico. I do have some shards of Anasazi pottery from north central Arizona.

    1. There is some great hiking there, but nothing tops Utah in my book.

    1. Oh, yes. I lived a little north of Santa Fe for about a year and a half when I first arrived and this was a regular part of my life for a while. Beautiful walk and habitation site at the top.
