Our summer rains have arrived! The cloud cover reduces the heat, and rain refreshes the landscape. It's a lovely time to drive around and see our beautiful state.

Chimayó, Córdova, Truchas, Las Trampas, Peñasco—these are the tiny villages strung, like beads on a necklace, along the winding highway through the mountains to Taos.

7:30 am is my favorite time in Old Town Albuquerque. It's still and quiet, the birds are singing, flowers are blooming, and it's fresh from last night's rain.

This house is around the corner across from Tiguex Park. It dates from the early 1900's, and this is known as "New Mexico vernacular" style. The other common style here is Pueblo Revival, with a flat roof, portal and vigas. I really love the yellow irises in full bloom.

A little Bottger Mansion history: Guests often ask us about the little "closets" in the three guest rooms on the second floor.

When the Bottger Mansion was built in 1912, there was a furnace and coal cellar in the basement. Vents in the floors of rooms on the first story carried the heat to those rooms. For the second floor, vent shafts were built into the walls and carried the heat upstairs. Originally, the vents in the rooms would have been covered by some kind of louvered or lattice grilles.

When a different heating system was installed and the coal furnace was no longer used, the grilles were removed. Shelves and a small door were installed, making a fairly useless but interesting little closet.

This closet in the Huning Room also has a little niche above it, where we have a reproduction of an antique coin bank. Occasionally, a guest tells us that they took the bank out and figured out how it worked!

Nesting materials for the birds! This birdhouse is now filled with clipped sewing threads and short pieces of yarn. It's nesting season, and the birds have been taking them. Apparently they like orange yarn.

White Sands National Monument in New Mexico doesn’t have the elevation of Great Sand Dunes – most of the dunes we hiked on were well under 100 feet high – but it is no less of a cool place. Nestled into the Tularosa Basin just east of Las Cruces, New Mexico, this 275 square miles of white gyps...

Hope we can safely reopen soon, because lots of people around the country could use some quiet, mountain time. 🏔

With that in mind, pick up the trash. Leave no trace. (y)

The Pie Town settlement was established by Clyde Norman, a prospector who baked pies for profit in the 1920s when his mining claim didn’t pan out.

We got married this past Easter weekend at this beautiful place. We booked it site unseen, and can't tell you how perfect everything was. We can't wait to return.
