|Board the bus at 12:45 PM for a scenic trip to Santa Clara Pueblo (visit set for 1:45 PM), where you'll visit with Paul Speckled Rock in his shop. |
Santa Clara Pueblo is one of the friendliest pueblos of northern New Mexico, welcoming visitors.
The pueblo is famous for its blackware and redware pottery. Mr. Speckled Rock and his wife, Rosalda, offer a talk about how the pottery is made at Santa Clara, and they'll talk about the families who are best known for their pottery.
Continue on to the Northern New Mexico village of Chimayó, which is much as it has been over the last two hundred years.
You'll visit the "Lourdes of Northern New Mexico," the Santuario de Chimayó, famous for the healing earth found inside, and a nearby weaving center.
Chimayo has several families who have been known for their beautiful weaving for many, many years.
The Hispanic weavings are different from those of Native American origin, and it's interesting to see all of the things that can be made from the beautiful naturally dyed wool that is used.
You'll see traditional rugs, but also beautiful vests and jackets, placemats, handbags, and more.
Board the bus at 4:45 PM to go to dinner.
