My Greater Taos
When people think of Taos, they often mean Greater Taos -- for some that is the county of Taos plus contiguous areas of which they are particularly fond. For others, Greater Taos is more narrowly conceived.
The county of Taos, stretching to the Colorado border has about 30,000 people. The Town of Taos, a little less than 6000. And Greater Taos, it all depends on where one draws the lines, but I think it has about 20,000. Julia lives in Greater Taos.
