Go Ahead, Knock Hard


I love the look of this wood door. When I first walked by I thought it was a design painted on the door until I took a second look.

More Turquoise


I love the different types of turquoise. My favorite is Cerrillos turquoise from New Mexico and Sleeping Beauty turquoise from Arizona.

Struck by Turquoise


As I was walking by Ortega's on the plaza I was struck by the Concho belts and necklaces made from silver and turquoise.

Strolling through Santa Fe


This couple was strolling through town this weekend. I was drawn to the Orange sweater. I haven't seen one like that in a long time.

My Choice Too.


This big sign was hanging on a wall near Cerro Gordo road here in Santa Fe. Barack Obama will be in Albuquerque tonight. Who knows maybe I will make a run down there and have some pictures to post. Stay tuned.

Follow Me


While I was hiking along the trail I was suddenly joined by this beautiful Golden Retriever. Soon he was ahead of me looking back to see who was following.

On a Hike


Since the last snow there are alot of trees that have lost their golden leaves. I stumbled upon this spot while hiking on the Aspen trail.

Horno


Hornos are mud adobe built outdoor ovens used by Native Americans and early settlers of North America. Hornos are still used in parts of New Mexico and Arizona.

"Devil from Alaska"


While in Abiquiu on the studio tour I came across this artists representation on Sarah Palin. The artist J. Suris works mostly with wood. Here is her artist statement, "Although I primarily work with wood I am fascinated by the alchemy of mixing various materials such as antler, stone, bone and found materials into my work to achieve the calling of each piece. My recent work takes the form of intimate cabinets and magic furniture, figurative spirit beings and sometimes surprising representations of my journey into the "listening place"--a place I find myself in as I hold gathered materials in my hands before I begin working."

Rain Clouds Over the Chama River


The Chama river flows through Abiquiu in Northern New Mexico. While we were up for the Artist Studio Tour the rain came and went through out the day.

Watching me, Watching you.


You have to click on this one. While driving around Saturday I notice these two Ravens sitting on this rock. By the time I stopped the first Raven decided to do a fly by on the second Raven.

Got Apples?


You may or may not remember this horse from a post around the same time last year. I went up to Truchas New Mexico and saw her again just hanging out and checking out people to see if they have any treats. Truchas is a cute little town north of Santa Fe. Robert Redford made a movie here call "The Milagro Bean Field War." If you haven't see it and you like older movies check it out.

Time to Hit the Road


I saw this horse walking close to the San Domingo Pueblo. Like this horse I will probably be hitting the roads in the coming week. I will be on vacation and looking forward to seeing some new sites in New Mexico.

Fall comes to Santa Fe


The leaves are turning gold here in Santa Fe. We took a hike along the Aspen trail this weekend and were amazed at how many trees had already turned.
