|Sketches of the Earthships|
I put the Earthship sketch first because I loved this site. It is a collection of self-sufficient structures that grow their own food, make their own energy and recycle their own waste. They build them from recycled materials. I have heard that the UC Architecture department has a program has done programs in Taos before, but I could not find a link.
I am pretty sure these structure inspired the home of Luke's aunt and uncle on Tatooine...

|On the solstice, we watched the sun set over the gorge from another angle.|

Finally, the San Francisco church. St. Francis is really big in this area. This is the mission church made famous by the painting by Georgia O'Keeffe.
