On Saturday October 3 and Sunday October 4, locals and visitors could view the ancient trade of wool weavers and spinners as vendors came together for the 26th annual Wool festival in Kit Carson Park. Alpacas, sheep and even exotic rabbits were on display along with a shearing demonstration. The temptation is great to purchase some of the beautiful yarns to knit that warm winter sweater during the Taos snow days.
Another prescribed burn was conducted by the Carson National Forest at Picuris Peak near U. S. Hill. Smoke could be seen rising into the autumn sky near the SMU in Taos campus.
