TRAVEL: Santa Fe National Forest

An early spring forest bloom...
The hole in the tree needed a cairn... :)
Blessing myself with cold creek water.
Solid ice...

We hiked in Hyde State Park - there was lots of ice and snow on the ground.
Next we headed up higher to the Santa Fe National Forest.  Just look at the
layers of aspen and pines on the mountains...

Sketching the trees.

Simple reminder for my travel journal...

Taking it all in -the width, height and breath of this bountiful forest.

Wish you a great week, dear friends!


  1. Looks beautiful and calm out there!

    1. It's both of those totally. The ski trail was just a little farther up. Maybe another time, we'll try it.

  2. Alright alright alright. The forest there is delicious!
    And I just can't believe that you set your watercolors up and started painting the trees!
    I've hiked Hyde but never that far. It looks well worth it!
    Looks like you guys had a blast in nature. Love it.

    1. We checked out Hyde this time because the last time we hiked in the national forest... All lovely as you know. :)
