another Vintage Vehicle, not really a truck, but I have always loved the way that other artists have portrayed these old Conestogas. This one lives in Tubac, AZ and it was late in the January day, 2005. The story of the wagon breaking down near Taos with the founders of the Taos art colony has become a defining story as part of their important history. It made them stop and pay closer attention, a good thing (if not the best thing) for artists. Countless pioneers giving up everything they knew for the hope of something better. Hope is our best survival instinct.
