Welcome to my site on New Mexico. Unlike many states in the US, New Mexico has cherished and held on to its history and culture while embracing the new world of technology, but has not compromised for either.
On the pages here you can join me through photographs as I explore New Mexico. But I don't want to replace a tour, just give you enough to tease you into wanting more.
Having grown up in Colorado, I really enjoy the mountain areas. Beautiful forests but without the severe winters. The southern areas are become a favorite with seniors escaping the suburbs. Life is more simple here, but with a special quality.
I'm not done exploring, but as I go I'll add photographs and stories here. -Don-
