#12 - A Labyrinth

When I saw #12- A Maze, Labyrinth, or Trail on Rinda's Photo Scavenger Hunt list, I figured I'd be able to find a trail, but I couldn't remember the last time I ran across a maze or labyrinth. However, as Robbie was scanning the tourist brochures on our trip to New Mexico, he pulled one out and said, "Here's your labyrinth!" Sure enough, it was a brochure about a labyrinth right there in Taos. Robbie came to the rescue again as we were heading out of Taos - he spotted the tiny sign almost hidden among tree branches that marked the turn off to the labyrinth.

The labyrinth was open to the public as a place of meditation. As it was fairly early in the day, no one else was around, so I was able to get a few good photos.

Robbie and I walked the labyrinth and discovered someone had left a little note along the way.

A few days earlier, I had captured photos of some black diamond ski trails from the chair lift at the Taos Ski Valley, so I'll share those, too.

This leaves me with seven more scavenger hunt items to find. Are you participating in the hunt? How many items do you have left?

What a wonderful find. Love the photographs of the Labyrinth and how you found a greeting on the stones.
I have just a few more photographs to take on the Hunt that are proving tricky, like the elusive Bride!

what a great find, I'm struggling with this one.

Beautiful labyrinth, and the message left behind is sweet. I also have six more to find but hope to get a few this week.

Truly, this hunt has been better than watching a travel show! I have seen so many new and wonderful things from across the world

I'm so glad you found a real labyrinth. I added trail and path because I thought a labyrinth alone would be too hard for everyone. So, I'm really happy when one shows up!

Karen said...

You've found one of the two I still have left to do! Love the labryinth.
