November on the Rio Grande

Rio Grande near Pilar, NM

It always smooths one out to come here

Just sharing some beauty from the weekend with this view of the Rio Grande at Orilla Verde in the Rio Grande del Norte National Monument. And actually, that may not be right. Since the Orilla Verde area was included in the new national monument, maybe it doesn’t rate a special designation any more. I’ll have to check the signs more carefully next time. But isn’t this grand? That’s a typical look for November, with the river reflecting the sky like that, and the other colors are amazing, too. We can get to this place in less than 20 minutes from our house, and it’s almost never crowded. How the hell could it be?

John Hamilton Farr lives in Taos, New Mexico, U.S.A. with his classical pianist wife. “Possibly the only place I can get away with this,” he says. As New York Times best-selling author James C. Moore (Bush’s Brain) put it in a review of John’s first book, Buffalo Lights is the work of a man attuned to the world who sees it differently than you and I and writes about it with a language and a vision of life that is impossible to ignore.” John is the author of BUFFALO LIGHTS, TAOS SOUL, ANOTHER DAY IN PARADISE, and THE HELEN CHRONICLES. He has been publishing online since 1996 (Zoo Zone, Farr Site, MacFaust, GRACK!, FarrFeed) and blogs regularly here at JHFARR.COM.
