Later in the week I decided to go into the Taos Plaza with Laura and Kim to do some shopping. We had been working hard trying to finish up the final touches on our projects, so some retail therapy was much needed. As soon as I got there, I understood why the location was so popular.

There were several shops that both locals and tourists could stop at to purchase anything from scarves to authentic, handmade Native American pottery. Not only that, but there were plenty of street vendors selling noodles and tacos.

We had only planned to stay a short while, but it turned into six hours very quickly.

The highlight of the day was that we were able to get some delicious pizza from the famous Taos Pizza Outback. I only ordered one slice, but it covered the entire plate as if it was a full order. But it was still quite good.   The rest of the day was rather peaceful, and tomorrow we would hear Dr. Ubleaker lecture to the Environmental History class.

Enjoying a break
