In 1898, Ernest L. Blumenschein and Bert Geer Phillips were stuck in the mountains of Northern New Mexico with a broken wagon wheel, which led to their own personal origin stories in Taos. The story is so good it sometimes overshadows a more important one: Joseph Henry Sharp traveled through Taos five years earlier and it was that journey that was the catalyst for much of the Taos Society of Artists. Sharp was traveling with painter John Hauser, who had accompanied him to the San Juan Pueblo for the San Geronimo ceremonies. At the conclusion of those events, they made the long journey to Taos, setting the stage for the TSA, the Taos Art Colony and an important period of art in the Southwest.
