On this blogger site one can click on all pictures except for the header two times each time making them larger which is a feature I like because it gives you the ability to really look very close at all kinds of things not readily seen.

Bandelier A Year Ago


Not quite a year ago visited Bandelier National Monument in New Mexico. It was a nice day getting late into November and was there just a short time. Very interesting and saw just a tiny bit. Hope to get back there soon and spend a bunch more time looking around.

There are ruins but as you see they lived in the sandstone cliff faces as well. Some of these ladder pictures from the inside I like a lot.

Decided to start putting a picture from the current post at the top of the page.


There is another another similar to this below but I like the different perspective of the same picture even though it's subtle.

This is the one. It almost seems someone could be living here.



I like the effect from roof timbers. They make these buildings seem to still be alive.






There's something about this picture. Some how it looks almost surreal. Remember these can be clicked on twice to make them bigger each time.



Have never been inside of anything even close to what we found here.  There are several pictures close to the same but each different and I like them all. Each one seems to be very intense and then being able to see structures as well below.
















The holes you see are to support roof timbers.



It had been a while since I viewed these and forgot about this one. Didn't think it that good but looking at this again I like it a bunch. Wish there was a columbine in there instead of ice but still.

Tumacacori National Historical Park

This park is located just north of Nogales and much more can be found at the link below.
Settlement at Tumacacori dates back at least to the early 17th century, when this was the site of a Pima Indian village in north Mexico.


There are many pictures here. Some are illustrative as in the dioramas showing what the inside looked like 250 years ago. It's easy to envision what it must have been like as much is still in place.

This is the only time I have taken so many pictures that were keepers. The colors here are impressive and I have not tired looking at these. Hope you enjoy them and if you should happen to share them tell 'em you got them here. Thanks
