Today's upload: I'm in the mood for some architecture. This is an old (authentic) adobe house situated in the small town of Las Trampas, nestled along the high road to Taos, between Taos and Santa Fe, New Mexico.

I love Las Trampas. It's this small, tiny tucked away town that's long forgotten by most on the well-worn tourist paths. It's the kind of town most people would just drive straight through, without stopping to see. It's the kind of town I might have lived in, had I lived so long ago, down Mexico way. Really, it's that sort of a place.

Having said all of that, I think this building has been patched. But still, it's authentic, it's adobe and it's probably still there in downtown Las Trampas, waiting for somebody else to discover it.

We really all should get out more, don't you think?

Until next time...
