Afternoon Drives to Santa Fe

NEARLY WORDLESS WEDNESDAY

The Engineering Geek and I have been making the drive up the Turquoise Trail to Santa once a week in the afternoon, during this late-summer term for IRD teaching.

We have stopped to take quite a few good pictures on the way. So without further ado, here they are!

















Thunderheads build over El Corazon de los Ortiz, July 16, 2008.


















Looking north toward Madrid and across to Santa Fe on the descent from the Ortiz. July 16, 2008.













Iglesia San Jose, in Old Cerillos, NM, July 23, 2008.


















Rain over the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, Santa Fe, NM, July 16, 2008


















Looking from San Marcos, NM, across the Galisteo Basin. July 23, 2008.



















Sunset thunderstorm, looking southwest from Santa Fe Community College, July 23, 2008.

The world may be going to perdition, but what a view we have from our mountain paradise.

Every time I make this commute, I still say: "And they pay me to do this!"
