Every year at the first weekend of October the famous Wool Festival takes place in Taos, New Mexico. A great event! It attracts every year more and more exhibitors and visitors. The great thing is that most often the weather is just perfect, autumnally colorful, sunny and warm – which, well, is unusual for Taos, being at an altitude of over 7,000 feet, around this time of the year.
One of the biggest attractions at the Wool Festival – and there are many, very many of them – are the Alpacas. I love these animals. They look cute, even when I know they are not really cuddly animals. But their open expression of their curiosity toward everybody and everything is just phenomenal.
