New Mexico is full of amazing things. Less than an hour from my front door is this beautiful place. From where I stand in this photo, I am in the middle of an extinct volcano cone...........we saw the most amazing blue birds and a huge herd of elk with fabulous antlers. A wildlife preserve that I am so grateful we have here.

It was cool and misty. A beautiful day.

Then back to the city and 90 degree temps...the evening cooled down, the rain came. We sat out on our patio discussing our future amid the most amazing lightening storm and a soft rain. The garden smelled wonderful. Can you tell??????????? I had a great weekend. Sure hope you did.

I found your site from my sister's blog (Frenchless in France).

Linda and I were raised in Silver City, New Mexico but I don't remember it looking as beautiful as your picture.

Glad I found your blog.

Wow, lovely photo. There's nothing better than the smell of rain, is there? Especially when it has been hot.

New Mexico is one of my favorite places. I lived in Pecos for a few years. Thank you for taking me back, the thunderstorms are glorious aren't they!
Love the photo!
