Early Monsoon Season

Early Monsoon Season

Seems as if summer’s come earlier to the Sandias than I can remember. Last year, on May 31, I slid down a huge snowdrift not far from this spot; this year the aspens are already leafed out and it looks as if monsoon season’s blowing in close to a month earlier than usual.

If you think you’ve seen this view before, you have — it’s one of my favorites.


Old and Abandoned

An old house and tree beneath a glowering spring sky.

It looks as if my opportunities to take photos around the state will be a bit limited this year due to COVID-19. I’m using the time to process older photos; I took this one last year on a trip through the eastern plains of New Mexico.


A Truly Delicate Arch

New Mexico's Delicate Arch

A delicate red rock arch in northern New Mexico. It’s much smaller and more delicate than its counterpart in Utah. It’s also very high up; likely impossible to get to without technical rock-climbing skills.

Recycled Roadrunner at Sunset

Recycled Roadrunner at Sunset

A very large recycled roadrunner (with wings made of crutches!) overlooks the Organ Mountains at sunset. You can read more about it here (I think it’s brilliant!).
