Moody Land

Since our big move this summer to Albuquerque I've been somewhat of an explorer.
Exploring the new landscape here has been extraordinary. Everything here is different from the east coast. Trees. Colors. Flowers. Sky. Even the dirt is different; sandier, redder, varied... The land is moody. Pink mountains. Blue sky without a cloud in site. Scorching sun. Deep colored mesas with stripes through the rocks. Dramatic sunsets. The colors are vibrant, ever changing and beautiful!

And the flora can we downright dangerous while still enticingly colorful.
