The Morada

New Mexico

The Morada is nestled in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo mountains outside of Taos, New Mexico. The mountains are named for the red light that appears to flow down them at sunrise and sunset. In the day they provide a blue backdrop to the Stations of the Cross that culminate in a high black cross, a favourite subject of painter Georgia O’Keefe. The Morada itself is a long adobe structure with doors and windows the colour of a clear sky.
