Barren countryside along I-40. West of Amarillo, East of Albuquerque.
Same thing, but with clouds. Closer to Albuquerque.
Remember the amorous turtle I blogged about when I visited the Albuquerque zoo? Well here he is just before he made his move. Notice the green mold on his neck. You'd think once you were old enough to grow mold that would be the end of your friskiness. Maybe they make tortoise Viagra.
Here are some shots of historic San Felipe de Neri Church in Albuquerque's Old Town. Much of the area was built in 1706.
More scenery along the road back home.
And lastly this is the rise of the full moon over the canyon where I live. This pic was taken about two miles from my house, from the driveway of one of my critique partners. She lives on the rim of the canyon. I live farther down the canyon in the bottom. The state park Palo Duro Canyon is only a few miles away as the crow flies but twenty by road. Palo Duro Canyon is the second largest canyon in the United States.
