There’s something so endearing about the little bee hot air balloons. They’re a family of three, but the dad (Joey) was missing when I took this photo at the Balloon Fiesta. What I couldn’t possibly have seen at the time (and what’s difficult to see in this view) was that the pilots were clearly talking to one another. I love this view and now strongly suspect the positioning wasn’t just a coincidence.
One of the most fun hikes I’ve ever done was the Church Rock hike at Red Rock Park in Gallup. I can’t wait to go back when it’s a bit cooler.
A meadow on the east side of the Sandias, filled with late summer wildflowers.
Silhouettes and brooding virga clouds at sunset.
I have yet to see a view of the East Fork of the Jemez that I didn’t totally love. This one is from the middle of Valle Grande, part of Valles Caldera National Preserve.
