Throughout the Southwest there are thousands of archeological sites with the remains of lost and abandoned homes. Often whole communities moved or died because of lack of water. The Taos Pueblo is the exception. It has been continuously occupied for over a thousand years. Why? Location, location, location. This pueblo is nestled up against the Taos Mountains. Pueblo Peak at 12,305 not only provides a dramatic backdrop to the community, but a steady source of water for the people, animals and crops.
