I am falling in love with New Mexico. It has taken me long enough, but our recent road trips have sealed the deal for me. I first knew only the state's southern deserts and, though I tried very hard, they looked like a lot of rocks and dirt to me. Lately, though, we've spent a bit of time road tripping through some of the central and northern parts of the state, and I can't get the wonderful sights out of my mind.
These photos were taken last weekend as we approached Santa Fe from the south on Route 285. The company was good, the hot day was perfect, the mountains were blue, and the skies were amazing.
