Monday afternoon just outside Red River, New Mexico.
(click for bigger and better)
We reached this point after a 10-mile drive up a steep, winding, one-lane dirt road. The rest of the week promises to take us higher. We’re talking snow near a mountain lake — in July.
A full recap of the trip probably won’t come until after it’s over. Maybe I’ll get a chance to post teasers throughout the week, and maybe I won’t. Comment replies definitely won’t be up to par.
And that’s alright by me.
That said, another pic follows.

I read everybody’s comments on my previous post and felt the need to clear up something.
The trip pictures from that post are from our 10th anniversary trip — back in August 2002.
While we are indeed in the Rockies right now, we’re nowhere near where the above events occurred. We are on a family trip with my folks and (soon, we hope), my brother and his family.
Large, vicious dogs and a state-of-the-art security system with frickin’ laser beams protect our house right now (you know, just in case anybody gets any bright ideas).
