Jemez in Fall: Highway 4

Día de los Muertos 2017

Drummers at the Marigold Parade

The Marigold Parade was today. It’s basically a large, quirky, and very exuberant party that moves through Albuquerque’s South Valley each year, celebrating Día de los Muertos. I was able to capture one drummer in the reflective sunglasses of another as they played.


Jemez Halloween

Halloween Horse and Buggy Ride

There’s a really amazing Halloween/Dia de los Muertos display in the Jemez this year, on Highway 485 (to the Gilman Tunnels). The entrance features a very large skull:

There are real, honest-to-god gravestones:

Many of the displays move:

And there’s much, much more.

Lilly and Joelly Bee

Lilly and Joelly Bee hot air balloons

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.
