Mountain Roads

While I was in New Mexico, I went to spend a few days with my brother and sis-in-law at their winter place in Truth or Consequences – we’ll talk more about the name and history of this city in another post. They bought this winter retreat to escape the winters in their home state of Minnesota. Took them a few years, but they finally got smart!

I captured a few photos of the two of them, which SIL did not want me to publish so I reached a compromise – I am not publishing the close-up, SIL – that’s “our” compromise.

During my visit, they introduced me to some of their favorite mountain ranges – they are avid mountain hikers.

We passed a rain squall,

stopped for a picnic lunch here,

and drove up roads like these

occasionally meeting some of the local residents (some closer than others)

to enjoy beautiful views like these.

It was a grand introduction and we did much more, but all good things take time you know so those posts must wait a while.

    Those mountain views are magnificent! While it’s a lovely place to visit, I’m not one to live in the desert Southwest. Much too dry for me! But I can’t argue with the beauty of these landscape shots.

    Wow, these are stunning photos, Carol! Such magnificent country side, but it does look rather dry. I especially love the photo of the dirt road, with the wooden post fence running along the left side, that scene looks almost Australian-ish. 🙂
