On the road to Christ in the Desert Monastery, NM

On the way down Route 84 to Abiquiu, we detoured to see the Benedictine Monastery of Christ in the Desert. The chapel is fascinating and in a great setting, but as usual, nature gets most of my attention.  (Aside: I think I have finally learnt how to get photos to appear in the desired chronological order, so you can click right in this gallery!)

Near the Piedra River, in southwestern Colorado

We were back in the South-West to end the year, and this first collection is from along and near the Piedra River, in south-western Colorado, a bit west of Pagosa Springs.

Update: clicking on any photo takes you to carousel view now . . . but WordPress defaults to displaying from newest backwards and it is tedious to reorder them, so click leftward in the carousel to see them in chronological order!
