"A village called Trout" Truchas by toonsarah
Truchas Travel Guide: 3 reviews and 8 photos
The village lies just off the main highway, and was built in a square with an entrance just wide enough for one cart to pass through, for defensive purposes. Today it’s a pretty sleepy place, or so it seemed to us, especially after the relative bustle of nearby Chimayó.
In addition to the church there’s a general store (closed on the Sunday when we visited) and a few art studios – the one nearest the church, Hand Artes, was open although we only browsed the outdoor exhibits.
Robert Redford filmed "The Milagro Beanfield War" here. I have never seen the film but I plan to track down the DVD now that I have visited its location.
And to continue with us on the High Road to Taos, please visit my little Las Trampas page.
Of all the villages we stopped in on the High Road to Taos, Truchas seemed the most closed in on itself, even slightly... more travel advice
