From Arkansas to New Mexico

I drive from Dad’s house towards Albuquerque to see my friends Sam and Jessica. It is scenic in a way that is entirely different than the coast.


I find a buffalo in Oklahoma:



The cold of Oklahoma bites into me, and so I am glad to get into the warmer temperatures of Texas. I find cotton once I get there:



Not to mention the very familiar sight of oil wells:



I enjoyed lunch out in the grasslands, a view that reminded me of Arizona:



And then it was on to New Mexico. I drove through the Cimarron Canyon, which was full of gorgeous views:



It was cold enough that all the ponds and streams were iced over:



The sun headed towards the horizon at Eagle’s Nest, just outside of Taos:



I spend the night in the artsy town of Toas, editing photos in a coffee shop/movie rental store. Tomorrow I head south for Albuquerque.

Hey, Tombo. Let's get together for a (whatever) when you get back to town. I'd like to hear about your favorite places.

Ooooh. I love the area around Taos (probably more than I love Taos)

Cat - Sounds like a winner to me! I'll shoot ya an email.

Tom - didn't make it that far over. Currently I'm back in Prescott

QD - I didn't get a good look around Taos, so can't comment on the town, but the surrounding area is gorgeous!
