A curtained window on a pinkish building

I walked past this building constantly every day for two weeks while I was in Taos, New Mexico. I had peered in a few times as curiosity got the best of me and the entire building seemed to be empty save for some random junk and blankets. This building was attached to the hotel I was staying in and when leaving to return home I found out that the entire hotel was shutting down, this was it's last summer. It's difficult to imagine the rooms myself and my group lived in for two weeks abandoned like the smaller building, and it was obvious how much this place meant to those who worked there. In retrospect I wish I had done more to capture it.
