Santa Fe, NM ~ The first two photos were taken within the city of Santa Fe, but the remaining were taken within an Indian reservation, location unknown (unremembered). Sometimes we just start driving in a direction until we feel like stopping. Therefore, I can’t remember how we arrived at this particular reservation outside of Santa Fe, but I do remember stopping due to the beautiful church grounds.
Moab, UT ~ The drive through Utah can be sparse at times. This was a pit stop on a road trip that took us through the state.

Ropesville, TX ~ Ropesville is located about 30 minutes southwest of Lubbock, TX. These photos were taken from a gas station located right off of the highway.

There are many interesting exhibits about the history of the land, the local plant/animal […]
Artesia, NM ~ If you are a David Bowie fan, check out the movie “The Man Who Fell to Earth.” It was filmed in Artesia and surrounding areas, which is one of the reasons we decided to visit. The town isn’t very large, but it has tons of character and many historical elements.
