Papa Felipe's, it was time to move on along our way.
Flower pics for my flower friends.
Rose and I got our toes wet. And when I turned around mom was getting her toes wet too.
We headed north west on NM 550 towards Cuba but turned off on NM 4 towards Jemez Springs. This highway is a trip through time You are surrounded by geologic formations on all sides.
We had our books with us and mom was busy reading about the area that we were driving through. We had seen a TV show on NOVA last year about the Valles Caldera National Preserve and that's where we were headed. It didn't disappoint us.
Closed. We've been seeing a lot of this.
We are to early for the season.
Coming down into the caldera.
In the heart of the caldera.
If you'd like to read more about the caldera here is a link.
Devastating forest fires here a few years ago.
Outside of caldera on way to Bandelier.
Mom sitting among the ruins.
We did not walk up there.
Need I say more?
Thanks for reading our blog and see you in a few days.
Couldn't resist this one.
Evie and Joy
