This weaving studio & showroom is part of a weaving cooperative that is more than 100 years old.
See a glimpse of a time when the Rio Grande weaving tradition maintained village artisans through
long cold winters. Back then, Rio Grande weavers quenched a deep thirst for color, harmony and
spirituality by weaving for family, church and community. Today, Tierra Wools continues that legacy,
providing a place for local weavers to hone their age-old craft and explore new frontiers in designs
and techniques that are rooted in tradition.
Nestled in the valley of the New Mexico Rocky Mountains lies the small railroad town of Chama. Attractions are grand!
For the history buff, art lover, nature enthusiast and cultural explorer, the Rio Chama Valley offers boundless opportunities.

Ra Paulette - The Cave Digger
World-renowned “cave digger”
Dotted across the plains of northern New Mexico are a handful of caves carved by hand into the soft sandstone mesas and decorated with intricate organic motifs. These subterranean sculptures are the work of local artist Ra Paulette, who has spent almost 30 years excavating this arid landscape and creating characterful grottoes that he calls "luminous caves".
Using only hand tools, including pick axes, shovels and scrapers, the 69-year-old sculptor burrows into the sides of the cliffs, opening up vertical shafts as he works to provide ventilation and natural light. Practical features such as staircases, windows and doors are integrated to make the caves suitable for use as sanctuaries or places for meditation. Paulette sometimes carves the inner surfaces with forms resembling flowers, figures and tree trunks.
Our tour of Ra Pauletts creation is not open to the public, is only offered with New Mexico Wine Tours.
Will be included with your tour day of exploring and hiking or included with any other attraction listed or not listed.
Steeped in myth and legend, these ancient springs have been a gathering place and source of healing for thousands of years. The use of the waters can be traced back to the earliest human migrations in the region. Ancient peoples, the ancestors of today’s Native American Tewa Pueblos, built large pueblos and terraced gardens overlooking the Springs. “Tewa” is the language spoken by the 8 Northern Pueblos of New Mexico. Tewa People include current residents and descendants of Taos, Picuris, Santa Clara, Ohkay Owingeh (formerly San Juan), San Ildefonso, Nambé, Pojoaque and Tesuque Pueblos. sulphur-free, geothermal mineral waters have flowed from a subterranean volcanic aquifer for thousands of years. Ojo is the only hot springs in the world with four different types of mineral water including lithia, iron, soda and arsenic. Over 100,000 gallons come to the surface, revitalizing those who soak in these legendary, healing waters. Our eleven pools are filled with different types and combinations of these waters with temperatures ranging from 80-109 degrees.
