Bandelier offered a place to connect with the historic past of  New Mexico as this land was inhabited by the Anazasi  Indians around the12 th century. The peoples that called the Frijoles Canyon home lived a life I only can imagine...the canyon offered protection from the elements (relatively), a safe vantage point, fertile grounds as a small river ran through the area, and many animals to hunt... to be honest with you.. I kinda made that up... please do a search for more informatioan about the ancestors of this land...I know very little!!:)

I do KNOW... that I was in awe... that I dream of being part of a similar community, a modern day Pueblo community... where like minded people share a space of  land... farm for the benfit of all, share in resources... party together... break bread together...the native people had a good idea...a mutually benificial idea... they had to rely on each other... as we do today in our post cave dwelling era... although we still kinda live in caves... houses with high speed internet and television tha sucks the mind... okay... I won't go off on a tangent...

but, unplug he TV!!!!!!!

okay that's all!!
