On our recent road trip to Southern Colorado and New Mexico, we stopped in at the always-lovely Taos Pueblo. While the Pueblo’s architecture itself is the more obvious star, we found ourselves taken with the beautiful Hornos, or outdoor adobe ovens. Aside from the fact that they’re fantastically simple and efficient ways of cooking, each one has a distinct cyclopean character that adds greatly to the pueblo’s charm.

    That reminded me of breast-feeding.

    There is a horno at Rock Ledge Ranch in the homestead area. I’m not sure it was used this year, but it has been fired up for baking in the past.
