It is a drive out of Taos, but if you have time to add this to your site visits, then I recommend the experience. I loved the large tree and could envision Georgia O'Keeffe painting as she looked up through its branches. D. H. Lawrence...More

If haven't read Lawrence's literature extensively and seriously and know little about him--don't waste your time. You would be doing Lawrence an extreme discourtesy. Lawrence himself--like him or not--would expect you to read critically and STUDY his literature before engaging on what would essentially be...More
