Gilman Tunnels

Gilman Tunnels

There was some kind of magic afoot when I visited the Gilman tunnels a couple of weeks ago. It’s generally really hard to get this kind of shot, looking out from one tunnel through the other. Usually there’s a car parked between the tunnels, or people walking up the road, or just wonky light. This time, though, conditions were perfect — including the angle of the sun, more to the north than it is any other time of year.

The tunnels were built about 100 years ago for a logging railroad.


Only in New Mexico

Upside down federal government sign

On the scale of things we say “only in New Mexico” about, this upside-down governmental sign ranks pretty low. Even so, only in New Mexico.


Ruffled Feathers

Beep-beep!!! A family of roadrunners has moved into (taken over?) my neighborhood. They’re extremely cute little troublemakers.

Happy Halloween and/or Dia de los Muertos (whichever you prefer)!

The neon on the midway got going just as the sun went down.
