After our antler hunting adventures, it was time to press on north towards Albuquerque and Santa Fe. The open spaces of New Mexico are so appealing and I snapped lots of photos along the way!
We parked alongside the road and checked out the lava at El Malpais National Monument. I would love to come back to this area and drive the Chain of Craters Backcountry Byway and do some hiking and caving in the National Monument.
Then just north of where we stopped is an area called “The Narrows” and the scenery got spectacular.
Oh New Mexico. You deserve more of my attention. Someday.
