Following on from the previous update here are a random set of photos of Northern New Mexico……
Approaching the Chama River and Ghost Ranch in pink rock sedimentary mesa with sagebrush below.
A close up of what we think is the delightfully termed skunk cabbage. Anyway they are nice plants and grow in wet meadows so are a good water indicator for us!
Martina camped in a stand of aspen at 9,500 feet in the morning sun.
We are in rolling hill country here in northern New Mexico at about 10,300ft and beginning to see more snow.
We meet up again with Ted and Richard after we all took different routes through the forest. An opportunity to dry everything out again before the rains start in the afternoon. Our walking is typically on old disused jeep roads as seen here.
Colorado border at last- now to camp before the thunderstorms hail on us again!
