New Mexico Oh My

Taos Valley Overlook

Rift Valley Trail, Taos Valley Overlook

Oh my God, it works! This photo upload was just an experiment, but we’ll leave it for now. HUGE, innit? Anyway, here’s where I was around noon today. T-shirt, shorts, air temp about 65 °F, dry and breezy. Just stunning, really. Every peak you see on the horizon is volcanic. The Rio Grande Gorge in the center drops down 800 ft to the river. Humans have wandered this valley for thousands of years. Now I’m here, and today I walked four miles.

    This is an awesome photo. Really captures the spaciousness of sky and land. I saw it first on my iPhone where the lines and shadows dominated and it seemed like a great piece of abstract art.

    This is so beautiful that I just ordered it from your online store. This is pretty much what I see every time I drive into Taos from the south, and I have a sense of awe every time. No one should take this view for granted. Someday we’ll be able to fill the whole gorge with plastic trash.

      That’s the view, all right!

      Thanks for your order. You’re the first to place one via SmugMug and the print shop I’ve chosen (WHCC in Minneapolis). I will be very interested in hearing how the order turns out—especially the colors—because I haven’t tried it myself yet. No doubt you’ll let me know.
