I don’t often go to town but when I do……
Santa Fe, New Mexico, off Rodeo Road.
Hiking the trails of the Rio Grande del Norte National Monument you sometimes encounter some local residents. This healthy coyote appeared to be on a snack stroll. #coyote#NaturePhotographyhttp://brittrunyon.com
Chaco Canyon Kiva
Chaco Culture National Historical Park is well worth the visit when you visit the Land of Enchantment.
This Raven didn’t seem to mind the falling snow. Rio Grande del Norte National Monument, New Mexico.
On this weeks “sanity ride” we headed for the high country of the Carson NF and the Tusas Mountains. Forest Service Rd. 111 dropped us in downtown La Madera, population 157. Here’s the obligatory photo in front of the community center, the Apache Drums.
A simple road sign on Highway 285 of Northern New Mexico where a decision must be made. Turn right and head for the Ojo Caliente Hot Spings for a soak or turn left and visit Geogia O’Keeffe country.
Autumn brings the gold leaves of the cottonwood trees and cooler temperatures. It’s a time for getting into the outdoors and absorbing what nature provides.
A view at the crossroads.
Taos Pueblo, New Mexico
Living in Northern New Mexico my life is rich with the sights, the sounds and aromas of Native American culture. The Taos Pueblo, or Pueblo de Taos, is an ancient pueblo which is home to the Tiwa speaking pueblo Native Americas. It’s about 1,000 years old and located about 75 miles North of New Mexico’s capitol city Santa Fe. The community was built on the banks of the Rio Pueblo de Taos, also known as Rio Pueblo and Red Willow Creek, whose headwaters are in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. The unique adobe architecture is utterly amazing to say the least. This image was taken when I was there at the first annual Dennis Hopper Day Celebration in 2014.
