Oh what a bee oot iful morning!

Oh what a beautiful day!

It is truly that. Fall is the MOST beautiful time in Taos. Who ever saw such dramatic colors - gorgeous golds and reds and blues, crisp air and amazing light.
Artists came to Taos to paint early in the last century, actually beginning to travel here late in the previous one. The air is still clear,color is magnified, and often as the weather cools it is scented with the smell of pinon (sorry no tilde) wood smoke.

Taos Mountain (Elevation 13161 feet elevation) is so beautiful. Close to to the town (7000 feet elevation)that nestles at its feet ; it is rugged and spectacular, the colors clear and personal with shadows outlining deep forest canyons in which you can imagine yourself walking.

I will show some pictures so you can enjoy it this morning too. God is AMAZING, ASTONISHING in His Creation! Thanks be to God!

A beautiful video

Here is a wonderful video I just came across. Beautiful imagery and chant from Optima Monastery in Russia.
