Fall on the Rio Chama.


This is the Rio Chama which has been made famous in paintings by Georgia O'Keefe. It runs through Abiquiu and feeds into the Rio Grande. The Fall colors were just starting last weekend and I am sure they are even more intense now.

Spectacular photo, Randy! You must have climbed a high mountain to get it! :-)

We were in Colorado a few weeks ago and the colors were very nice also.

I saw this photo the other day when my shoulder was hurting too much to type, but I know that I needed to come back to it. May I use it on my monitor as background...please?!
