Santeria de Nuevo Mexico - Taos, New Mexico

I love traveling to new towns and cities and taking walks down the streets looking for eye catching murals, graffiti or other forms of art. On our visit to New Mexico, we headed north of Santa Fe to the mountain town of Taos. Located in Sangre de Cristo Mountain, Taos is known for its arts and culture. In fact, the town started out as an artist colony in 1899. It now is a popular destination for tourists that enjoy the arts, the quaint shops in town, as well as the mountains and Taos Pueblo. While walking around town, I spotted this mural on the side of a building painted by artist George Chacon near Taos Plaza.
