Posted on Mon, 07-Dec-2015Tue, 29-Dec-2015 by pamNorthern New Mexico What a way to start our trip! We met up with Henry’s college buddy in Las Alamos to help with some remodeling. We did explore some of LA and spent the night reminiscing by the wood stove. A peaceful morning hike at Valles Caldera – a new addition to the National Park System as a Preserve from a ranch. Bandelier National Monument on a gorgeous winter afternoon A family of deer joined us on the hike – the littlest one the most curious. After a very welcoming night in Santa Fe with an nice dinner and morning frittata, we stopped for a hike at Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument. The rock formations were very fascinating. The Slot Canyons were a great place to greet the morning sun.
