North-western New Mexico, 2016-2017

[UPDATE: This is superseded by the gallery version “North-western New Mexico 2016-2017 Gallery“.  I leave it here in case anyone has shared the link.]

We spent a week touring the north-western part New Mexico over the new year, passing through Ghost Ranch (when Georgia O’Keeffe lived and painted for many years), Chaco Canyon, the Bisti Wilderness, Bosque del Apache, and my favorite telescope, the Very Large Array.  Some of those places deserve their own pages (coming soon?), but here are a few photos from the whole trip. (I plan to add a gallery view, so they can be seen larger.)
