The last day. So final.
This is the day that you find yourself trying to fit in everything that you wanted to do but didn’t get a chance to on all of the other days. So, it turned into a “bits” day – a little bit of this and a little bit of that.
A little bit of knitting.
A little bit of walking around the grounds, poking in and out of all of the wonderful nooks and crannies of Mabel’s house.
Here’s the door to that fabulous doorway.
A little bit more shopping. There’s Dad relaxing while we buy more yarn at Weaving Southwest.
A nice scenic drive for a little bit of picture taking.
Relaxing in the living room.
And the sitting room.
I sure will miss this wild, beautiful land.
You might have noticed that I haven’t posted any photos of my shrug yet. Weeeelllll…it is almost done with just the sleeve seams to be sewn and the little yarn ends to be woven.
Stay tuned for the “ta-da” moment of my Taos Shrug!
It is not a country of light on things.
It is a country of things in light.

I absolutely love the colors..earthy yet firey; just like a journey in life should be..
Thanks Christopher! Amen to that.
I’ve really enjoyed your trip. Everything so beautiful. I’m sorry to see it end! 😀
Karen.. those pictures of nature are a work of art. Amazing. What an amazing journey for you…. and NOW… on to your next one.
I enjoyed reading about your journey to Taos, NM.
I also understand the ways in which the essence of Taos wraps it’s arms about your soul. I heeded the call to the mountainous region in August 2009.
It was life altering . The people , the energy and just letting go and BEING…sigh…
I also wrote a blog about my adventures.
You could search Yahoo travel planner for Go West Girl as well.
Enjoy and take care !
[…] Inspired by the rich colors and textural landscape of Taos, NM, I started this wrap at the Jane Thornley knitting retreat I attended there last September. If you’d like to read about my journey there, I wrote about it here, here and here. […]
