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?
