Photographer roaming the West with two furry companions. Currently very happy to have returned home to Santa Fe after a few months in the soggy PNW.

When we’re hiking, it’s HazelNut who decides when, and where, we rest. Lately the rest stops have been more frequent. Always creative, but more frequent. at Santa Fe National Forest
Even though the monsoons have (sort of) started, its still very, very dry in the southwest...... be safe, and be smart (do you REALLY need that campfire?). at Santa Fe National Forest

In a bed, in a bed / by the waterside I will lay my head / listen to the river sing sweet songs / to rock my soul at East Fork San Juan River
Had to take a break, I've been working my ass off getting a serious photography biz off the ground (look for a new IG account soon featuring band and concert shots, and some other stuff). Found time for a much needed hike to my favorite hot springs at Santa Fe National Forest
Taking a break from the hike to enjoy some trail mix. We didn't have a big desert adventure this spring, as I've been concentrating on my concert and band photography (new IG account coming soon.....) and working with local small businesses (finally making some $ with photography!), but we have explored hundreds of miles of northern New Mexico forest roads in our backyard....... at Santa Fe National Forest
I just noticed that the seams on my @merrell Phaserbound hiking boots are beginning to split. Well, it's about time. I've had these boots longer than any pair before them, I don't know exactly how long, but it's been about 2 years, and for the last 10 months they've been on my feet all day, every day. They are the BEST hiking boots I've ever had, most comfortable, best supporting, I can't say enough good things. They've been through the deserts of NM, UT, AZ, CA, NV, and OR. They've climbed mountains in CO, CA, NV, and NM. They've crossed countless arroyos, waded hundreds of streams, stood in the Rio Grande, Colorado, San Juan, Merced, Russian, Eel, Klamath, Rouge, Umpqua, Siuslaw, John Day, Deschutes, Powder, and Snake Rivers. They've trod the shores of the Pacific Ocean and the Salish Sea, and scraped across the Badlands of New Mexico. And everyplace in between. Time to break in another pair, and show this pair one last desert season.
The English language fails to deliver those words needed to adequately describe this place. at Bisti/De-Na-Zin Wilderness
I always leave the 7 pin at Bisti/De-Na-Zin Wilderness
Spent the day exploring the badlands........ at Bisti/De-Na-Zin Wilderness
Lupi: Did someone say cat?
HazelNut: Did someone say TACO?
Me: I didn't SAY anything, I THOUGHT it! at Santa Fe National Forest
It's Desert Adventure Season....... I have a few planned, where are you heading? On a related note....anyone up for Reflection Canyon?

The La Cieneguilla Petroglyphs, south of Santa Fe, sit at the top of an escarpment on the eastern edge of Caja del Rio, a volcanic plateau formed by the same lava flows that formed the Parajito Plateau and Bandelier at the base of the Jemez Mountains, and is cut off from those features by the Rio Grande in 1000' deep White Rock Canyon. Over 4400 glyphs have been documented along a 1-1/2 mile stretch of the escarpment. at La Cieneguilla Petroglyph Site
Found the remnants of Winter...... at Aspen Vista, Santa Fe Natl Forrest
Went looking for winter at 11k' in the Sangre de Cristos........this is all we could find. Second week of February, and the Sangre snowpack is at less than 20% of median......less than 5% on the eastern slopes. Gonna be a scary fire season, be careful out there. at Big Tesuque Trail
The year without a winter..... Lupé enjoying a hike west of Santa Fe, the snowless Jemez Mountains and 11,562' Chicoma in the background. .

Traded the grey skies of the Northwest for the grey sky of the Southwest (?!). Glad to be home. at Frank S Ortiz Park
Lupi likes to stop at Looking Glass whenever we're in the area
