This is from the New York Times -<P>It is a very beautiful part of the United States - I have been there.<P><BR> Image <P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Dance is central to life in the pueblos, and goes on year round. Summer in the high desert of northern New Mexico brings choral rain dances or corn dances, soothing and exhilarating. Winter, with a few exceptions, is the time for powerful, dramatic re-enactments of life and death among the animals, the birth of tragedy from the spirit of the hunt. When the Yale architectural historian Vincent Scully, in his passionate appreciation "Pueblo: Mountain, Village, Dance," called the pueblo dances "the most profound works of art yet produced on the American continent," it was primarily the winter dances he had in mind.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><BR><A HREF="http://www.nytimes.com/2000/12/24/travel/PUEBLO.html" TARGET=_blank>MORE</A><BR>

Yes, Zoe - it is in that same area. Bandalier National Monument is a spectacularly beautiful place and very mystical. One can almost hear the voices of the ancient spirits.
