Fall colors and a choo-choo train in Chama, New Mexico.


Rain in Valle Grande

Rain in Valle Grande

Rain in the distance, seen from Valle Grande, part of Valles Caldera. Through the rain you can just barely see what’s left of the trees that burned in the 2011 Las Conchas fire.


East Fork of the Jemez, Valle Grande

East Fork of the Jemez, Valle Grande

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.


Greenish Blue Butterfly

Greenish Blue Butterfly

A small butterfly in the Sangre de Cristos outside Santa Fe. It might be called a Greenish Blue — but then again, you probably shouldn’t trust my butterfly IDs.


Rio Grande Gorge

Rio Grande Gorge

Looking south through the Rio Grande Gorge from just above the Taos Junction bridge. We’ve had tons of rain this spring; more fell shortly after I took this photo.
