Albuquerque to Tucson via Scottsdale, AZ...

a few highlights of a whirlwind trip….

These photos touch only some of the amazing sights and things we experienced on this road trip.

As usual it will take me as much time or more to recover and assimilate this journey…

as it did to take it.

 I remain ever grateful to have missed the big snowstorm in Albuquerque last weekend…

road trip….

While I'm in the company of the 'newly retired' it seems our new J-O-B is keeping fit.
And since the temps in Albuquerque have been warmish during the day, our daily fitness regime includes bike rides along the ditch…


and although I'm not a huge fan of Scottsdale, Arizona (sorry to offend the locals),
too much concrete, visible water waste and green in the desert…

I have a hard time saying 'no' to a road trip…

so at the end of the week we'll be heading in that direction…

intending to find what feeds our spirit…

perhaps a hike (or two), some music…good food, art, and even warmer temps will be at the other end.

Tucson, AZ and Silver City, NM are also on the loop….

It will be nice to breath a different air and shake off the dust of renovation for a bit. 

Feeling Blessed for the Opportunity.

out (t)here…with India Flint

When India Flint announced her guided excursion to this very special place,
I was inspired to post this collection of photos I took on an extraordinary journey 
 to the very same destination some years ago…

hoping I've done it justice...

the road to Wirrealpa






























































Thank you my friend.
