Los Brazos in Fall

Part of Los Brazos, seen from above during the fall

I suppose it’s possible that there’s some part of New Mexico that’s not beautiful this time of the year, but I definitely haven’t noticed it yet. This is a view of Los Brazos from above, taken a couple of weeks ago.

The Tiniest Hint of Fall

Pecos River, Early Fall

I think I can say with confidence that fall is coming unusually late to New Mexico this year. I took this photo of the Pecos River from the old bridge at Tererro just a few days ago. As you can see, the aspens are just starting to turn — and that was true across the board in that part of the Pecos Wilderness.

East Fork of the Jemez (Hidden Edition)

East Fork of the Jemez

A friend and I scouted out a more or less hidden part of the East Fork — my absolutely most favorite body of water in the world (even if it is really small) — on Labor Day. We splashed through water and clambered over rocks and, even though I’m sure many consider us “older women,” got to feel like wildly intrepid explorers for a day.

Big Tesuque Trail as it makes its way through multiple aspen stands in the Sangre de Cristo mountains. Those green leaves likely will have yellowed and dropped a month from now.
