Taos Pueblo - Summer of 2013
I took this photo on what I laughingly call "My chemo liberation tour".  The day after my last chemo treatment Dana and I jumped in the truck and headed out on a 3000 mile road trip to New Mexico.  Best medicine I could have had at the time.

Long time no see! 
Its been a while since I have posted anything to my blogs.  Two years ago I was diagnosed with Stage 2 Breast Cancer but after surgery and chemotherapy I have been cancer free for 2 years,  Last summer I traveled home to Santa Rosa, NM for my 40th class reunion.  It was a wonderful trip with time spent with the best people I know.  While in New Mexico I took Dana up to Sandia Crest.  On the east side of Albuquerque (and two miles high) I took this photo.  You can see the edge of the city if you look closely. If you've never been up there I encourage you to go, its breath taking.

La Placita - Albuquerque, NM

La Placita Restaurant on the plaza in Old Town Albuquerque - what I wouldn't give to be having lunch there today...or any day..or better yet - everyday.  Fantastic food and wonderful artwork - feed your body and you soul  at the same time.  I love this place.  Originally Casa de Armijo, I can only imagine what a beautiful home this must have been.  I think I was born about 100 years too late.

Blue Hole - Santa Rosa, NM

Truly the gem of Guadalupe County...okay, its at least one of the gems.
Blue Hole is a natural beauty - a sink hole 80 feet deep that is feed by an underground spring. 3000 gallons of water per minute accounts for the water being crystal clear. On the hottest summer afternoon or the coldest winter morning this miracle maintains a year round temperature of 64 degrees. Divers from all over visit this charming little spot. I will admit to doing a little photoshop editing to eliminate any signs of humans in order to create the Blue Hole of my memory and my dreams.
