Earthship Rt 64 on the Road to Chama Wednesday , May 11

After stopping at the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge for a few shots we headed north toward Chama on Rt 64. The skies were darkening and two inches of snow were predicted for Chama. Shortly after getting in our cars Steve Gottlieb spotted an unusual site with interesting architecture and he turned off the road to see what photo ops might be there...well it was the most interesting and unusual site I have seen. It was the location of "The Greater World Earthship Community" . We spent some time there fascinated by the architecture, creativity and environment. This was not a scheduled stop, but once again Steve was open to the serendipity of the adventure, guess that's why he calls it an adventure, you never really know what you will discover! The shots here are only representative of a small area near the visitor center. If you click on the link you will see the site is huge; and yes there was even an old truck, which Steve help the guys use their flash to capture the passenger compartment. Much more happened this day but that's for another blog...I felt this location deserved one all of it's own.

  1. Is this where the documentary Off The Grid was filmed? I have always wanted to go take photos there. This is a great set I really like the last one because of the colors and contrast.
