36 – Okhai Owingeh , Abiquiu , Ghost Ranch, Georgia O’Keefe

At 8:15  Carolyn, Pamela and I meet Robbie in front of the post office of Ranchos de Taos ((Trading Post Café or post office?)). She brings us to Georgia O’Keefe country. We drive for quite some time when, on the left of the highway, we see the peaks of the Sangre de Cristo, highlighted in bright white, a powder trail, almost unreal: snow whipped by the wind?

Robert shows us his beautiful jewels
