We took a drive yesterday to the Jemez Mountains.
I made an appointment with my family a few weeks in advance
For us all to be together and explore our state- Battleship Rock
I thought we might get out of the car and hike some but that wasn't to be. All of these pictures are taken from the car- not even stopping. I did a pretty good job huh?
We got to see some fall colors from the poplar and cottonwood trees
Lots of signs of elk crossing but no elk- it is hunting season
We did get to see the damage to the Bandelier forest from last years fire. Though not in the picture above.
Learned that it was home to a major volcano and this rock is what the indians dug their caves into. There are lots of hiking trails and ruins to explore and I hope we can do that one day.
I enjoyed our drive very much and hope to schedule another one next month.
