Awakening to Beauty

Bicycling New Mexico has awakened a vivid sense of beauty in me.  What I first saw quickly flowing by from my truck window in 1996 I am now getting to know in intimate detail.   The little things all around us in everyday ordinary life are actually extraordinary.  New Mexico is the most beautiful vernacular landscape, inhabited by the most beautiful people, I’ve ever seen.  These photographs are from recent bicycle rides beginning from my home in Albuquerque.

 Stopping to photograph these oxidized rocks on the way up the Sandia Crest,  I appreciated them more

This tree lives near 10,000 feet above sea level high up on the Sandia Crest

When I turn onto Gutierrez Canyon road it is apparent I'm in a special place
