Views VIII

As I approached this part of the trail the gentleman from yesterdays post was joined by his wife. The white that you see at the end of the look out is a type of limestone. I loved the view of the Perdernal from this spot.

That's an incredible view. I bet they could just stand there forever.

A perfect lookout point.
That white limestone is so unusual in the New Mexican scenery.
Beautiful.

Jack's not going to feel easy about this post either; the people are getting too close to the edge. That spot of limestone and color creates a bit of focus in the photo.

Being home now with a good internet connection I can once again see other people's blog posts. Just in time to see this wonderful looking hike you were on (went back and looked at the other posts). I didn't get enough desert on this trip. Next time.

The colors are fantastic! I bet that couple would love to have this picture.

If New Mexican limestone is a s slippery as it's English counterpart then there really is a danger of them adding to drama of the already dramatic situation. Wonderful view though.

A crescendo of great images: love the effect of that patch of white limestone, the great view, and the minuscule humans just to get the proportions of everything around!

Very pretty. I was trying to figure out how the snow got on that one spot.
