I wish I had more time to spend in Toas. After all, maybe I’d have run into Julia Roberts—she has a home here! In any case, I got to do a little cycling in this town that is, well, not exactly designed for cycling. At least not within the city itself. There are mountains surrounding the town and the Indian reservation nearby, and a ski resort to the northeast. I thought Taos was nice, with an eclectic mix of shops and lots of interesting adobe structures, though sadly not even Taos was spared from northern New Mexicans’ trash and litter.
They aren't igloos outside the bank They're copies of ornos or bread ovens traditionslly used by the pueblo natives.
