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.

Christmas in New Mexico 2011

I was blessed to travel by train to New Mexico for Christmas. This photo was taken from the train as we past through the Ortiz Mountains.
