Traveling

Sorry I’m late – again.  I’ve been traveling – and looking for image material.  We just got back from a trip back to New Mexico.  We got to check out some family history and genealogy that we wanted to trace out last time, but was postponed because of serious bad weather in our “hunting” area.  I will   show images from that later on.  We headed out toward the northeast corner of the state, up where your above the hills/mountains.  They consider it to be the high plains.  Altitude is around 6-6500 feet.  It was hot and dry,  upper 90’s to 102 or so.  Lots of sunscreen.  The images this week are from the trips up and back, they show the open road, the openness of the high plains, then dropping back into the lower areas at about 4000-4500 feet where we were staying.  They was a forest fire that took off with great gusto and as of this printing, took out over 17,000 acres. The Doghead fire.  This morning it was 46% contained.  So a few of the images have a haze showing, that is the smoke from the fire.  It took it a couple of days to clear away util they started to get control of it.  Enjoy the images,  I will add another layer next week to show other subjects.  The wind turbines were on the road in Texas, I’ve been told there are over 1000 of them in this particular area.
