John Hamilton Farr lives in Taos, New Mexico, U.S.A. with his classical pianist wife. “Possibly the only place I can get away with this,” he says. As New York Times best-selling author James C. Moore (Bush’s Brain) put it in a review of John’s first book, Buffalo Lights is the work of a man attuned to the world who sees it differently than you and I and writes about it with a language and a vision of life that is impossible to ignore.” John is the author of BUFFALO LIGHTS, TAOS SOUL, ANOTHER DAY IN PARADISE, and THE HELEN CHRONICLES. He has been publishing online since 1996 (Zoo Zone, Farr Site, MacFaust, GRACK!, FarrFeed) and blogs regularly here at JHFARR.COM.

    Love Truchas and the Milagro Bean Field Wars up there. I’ve taken that High Road several times. Love the scenery and the house way out where the family sells all sorts of art things. Very creative.
    If you are coming from the other side don’t you pass Chimayo and the holy church, holy water and holy dirt with miracles?

      Hi Anne! Sure, if you come from the south. We hadn’t been out that way for a long time.

        As it turns out, we will drive down from Ft. Collins. We will stop in Chimayo for the holy dirt and travel via the high road with an overnite in Taos on our way to Santa Fe for a few days in August. We were disappointed to see Casa Europa, a B & B outside of Taos, has closed and abandoned. We had stayed there several times.
