Eloy killed a rattlesnake in his yard this afternoon and now I'm feeling jiggy about walking around in sandals.

Parish Wide Fiesta

The seven missions of Santo Tomás gathered this morning at Ghost Ranch where Father celebrated mass under the large elm tree.

This is the first time I have been to Ghost Ranch and the landscapes there are quite enchanting.

The Road To Abiquiu

This morning, on the road to Abiquiu, the farm landscapes were breathtakingly beautiful as summer has finally arrived in Northern New Mexico.

Up the road a few miles, the Piedra Lumbre juts above the horizon.

I drove to the lake and enjoyed a moment of relaxation while boaters and fishermen carried on with their tasks. The water level is much higher than last year and the view of the majestic Cerro Perdenal was reflected in the water.
