Rancho de Taos, New Mexico

Rancho de Taos is a census designated place in Taos County, NM and is located just South of the City of Taos, NM. The main feature of Rancho De Taos is the San Francisco de Asis mission church which dates to 1772. It is the most popular landmark in NM around and also the most photographed church in the country and maybe the world. Guided to this church by a photographer friend, I took so many photos It was hard to determine which ones to choose for this gallery. You be the judge.
