Spring in New Mexico and Living out of a Suitcase

Left Arizona Saturday and will be living out of a suitcase for more than 4 weeks. It's fine with me, I like to see new things, especially natural areas in the southwest.  Many of the old ranches have been subdivided into large lots with significant common lands for the common people like Galisteo Basin Preserve near Santa Fe and Timberlake Ranch near Ramah, NM.  We have seen lots of afternoon wind and billowing cloud formations and even a few sprinkles of rain. We have a particular fondness for El Morro National Monument and El Malpais National Monument.  Tomorrow we will visit Pecos National Historic Park.  We hope to see the Randall Davey Home on Friday afternoon at the Audubon Center.  Below are a few recent kaleidoscopes of our travels in New Mexico.  Enjoy!
