East from Los Alamos

with 9 comments

A year ago today we drove east from Los Alamos on New Mexico Highway 502 across part of the Pajarito Plateau. In the distance were the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.

  1. What a stark landscape! 🙂

  2. You get to the most excellent places! While in New Mexico, I was fascinated by the unfamiliarity of the flora. Some of it looked sort of familiar, but I could not identify any of it.

    • I also find many unfamiliar flowers when I travel. Some I’m later able to identify, others not.

      • I brought back a yucca from Oklahoma, and STILL can not identify it. You would think that a yucca would be very easy to identify. Only a few are native to the area in which I found it. Unfortunately, some of those few are very similar.

  3. It’s strange how the angular formations you showed in the second photo almost look like fortifications around the hills in the first. The lower level of rocks in the second photo reminds me of the New York skyline.

    • Those angular formations do look like fortifications, don’t they? Your reference to the New York skyline is timely, given that I saw it in person two weeks ago.
