Home again, home again...

We arrived home from our vacation Monday night. We had a wonderful time on our trip to north-central New Mexico! We stayed in a cabin in Eagle Nest, NM. The elevation there is somewhere around 8500 feet. This is one of our views outside of the cabin.


Eagle Nest is located in the Sangre de Cristo mountain range.


This photo was taken on a drive to Red River, NM.


I took many, many pictures of flowers. My sweet hubby would automatically stop walking whenever flowers were nearby--he knew I would be stopping for a photo! This is in Red River.


Some of the flowers grow here in Missouri too, but they just looked so much better in the cooler temperatures. These cornflowers were in Angel Fire, NM.


We spent a full day in Taos, NM. It was our third time there and I don't think I could ever tire of it--so much to see and experience!

One of the best parts of the trip was the relief of cooler temperatures and lower humidity! This was the temperature at the cabin at 4pm on Saturday afternoon...n-i-i-i-ce!


We've sort of been easing back into life back home...but Rick is off this week also, so we're not working too hard at it. The laundry is caught up and our cat is over being mad at us for leaving but not much else...as I said, easing.

Wonderful, beautiful photos. Wow, thanks for sharing your trip with us. Especially those of us that can't get out of bed for awhile (see blog) :)
My favorite musician is Fernando Ortega and he has a song called Angel Fire. He is from the area.
Welcome Home!
Hugs,
Pam

My sister lives in NM. Her friend has a B & B in Cloudcroft which is around 9000 ft. We stayed there for a week, it's beautiful there. It's like going to Tahoe in CA.
They have skiers that stay there in the Winter, and it's is a wonderful place to stay.
