Monsoon Season

Monsoon Season

The stretch of Highway 550 between Cuba and San Ysidro is one of my very favorites. I was driving home along it a few weeks ago, and loved the way the clouds were spattering light and shadow across the landscape. I stopped, ran across the road, and took a few shots. This is the one I liked best.


East Fork of the Jemez

East Fork of the Jemez

Probably my all-time favorite body of water, and while I know it’s grandiose to say that about a little stream, it is my favorite. It was very lush in that part of the Jemez when a friend and I went up a few weeks ago.


Fogon Canyon Corral in Fall

Fogon Canyon Corral

The Fogon Canyon Corral, in the Jemez, is one of the most interesting places ever. It’s an old corral that used the tuff wall of the canyon as one side of the corral. I somehow managed to get there at the peak of the fall colors this year.


Aspens and Tent Rocks

Aspens and Jemez Tent Rocks

They aren’t the official tent rocks of the Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument, simply a few of the many generic tent rocks dotted all over the Jemez, with an accompaniment of yellow aspens.


Globemallow Flowers and Buds

Globemallow Flowers and Buds

A sure sign that fall is on its way: globemallow flowers and buds by the roadside in the Jemez. The purple background is one of the largest clusters of desert 4 o’clocks I’ve ever seen.
