Late summer sunflowers overlook the Rio Chama near Abiquiu.
The chamisa (aka “rabbitbrush” in every other western state) is already blooming up in the Rio Chama Valley, close to Christ in the Desert Monastery.
Part of the San Antonio Valle at Valles Caldera, and its eponymous creek.
I love the way the rust on the car is the same color as the surrounding terrain. It’s as if it’s become part of the landscape and the landscape has become part of it.
One of my all-time favorite views (I probably post a photo of this area every single summer), this time with late-blooming irises. Seems like everything bloomed pretty late this year.
