we have returned from a trip to new mexico. it took a few days to get into the life of leisure, but of course the vacation was too short to truly excel at it.
highlights of the trip included visits to the lightning field, bandelier, and white sands national parks. gustatory mentions go to the joseph's table and coyote cafe. and of course, miles and miles (nearly 2000 on our odometer) of spectacular and desolate nature. click on the above picture for a link to nina's flickr to see some of it.
