Cold front clouds 10_29_23

What looked like a calm fog on the Sangres, turned out to be a sign of atmospheric instability. In this case, a big cold front is moving through, giving us our first hard freeze of the year.

Marley Greyshanks

One month ago today, our little pup Marley (aka Bubs, Boots, Bestest Boy Ever in the Whole World, etc) passed on to the Great Scratching Post in the Sky. We miss him terribly… but know that somewhere a little grey kitten with a missing toe and crooked tail tip is causing trouble.

Annular Eclipse 10_14_23

We watched the annular eclipse from our front yard and I got some shots but missed the ring, doh! We also recreated the photo we took at Moraine Park in Rocky Mt. National Park during the eclipse of 2017.

Fall photographic history of Aspen Vista

16 years of essentially the same shot on the Aspen Vista Trail in the Santa Fe National Forest above Santa Fe, New Mexico (except for 2005, when we discovered the side trail that led up to the view of the Rio Grande Valley and Tetilla Peak). I’ll post more photos from 2023 in a bit. We love Fall in New Mexico!

El Ranchos de Las Golondrinas 10_8_23

We went to the 51st Fall Harvest Festival at Las Golondrinas; a living history museum of the Spanish colonial settlers of New Mexico. Cottonwoods would normally be turning orange but it was still too warm. We had fun exploring all the buildings and learning from the docents who volunteer to re-enact the lives of the past residents.
