Rural New Mexico


Every year while drive along the Taos High Road Studio Tour we pass this area. I always love this spot because it's usually where I can find some Fall colors. The shrub with a little touch of yellow in the foreground is called Chamisa in these parts (it's also known as Rabbitbush) and at this time of year it makes allergy suffers cringe.

Nice, I like seeing what the land looks like in other parts of the country.

PS. If you're going there today be sure to stop in Truchas at the Cardona-Hine gallery. Two artists from St Paul who moved there quite awhile. Interesting people!

I love rural barns...how awesome. We have lots here in KY and I love taking rural road trips to see them.

I'll avoid the bush but I love this photo...it's iconic old west, and would look great on someone's Santa Fe wall!

I can totally see why you like this.

A nice rural shot with a great old barn. I know what you mean about those yellow shrubs.

I've been feeling the fall set in of allergies so I think I'll just view these from the comfort of this blog.

Great shot of a different look at New Mexico, Randy!

A great spot you have found. The building seems to made of rough timbers. Nice tin roof should keep this structure standing for along time. Four strand fence and yellow fall foliage, frame the pic well!

A sweet spot to pass along your journey. :)

Charming, old west scene.

If it aggravates allergies, I'd be in trouble, but it sure is pretty.
