Pueblo Closed to Non-Indians

Today, Sandy and I left home to visit the Pueblo of San Ildefonso (Po-woh-ge-oweenge meaning "Where the water cuts through") located about 25 miles north of Santa Fe, NM.    However, we had to turn back at the entrance to the pueblo for today a the middle of the road sign read, "CLOSED TO NON-INDIANS."   We visited the nearby Nambe and Santa Clara Pueblos before returning home this evening.  From the highway leading to the Santa Clara Pueblo, I took this picture of the church below Black Mesa.   Please click on the panoramic image for a much better view.
