Fallen leaves were everywhere! I know we don't have the magnificent range of colors that they have in New England, but it's still quite beautiful.
Time out for some Mother-Daughter play! See the pretty red leaf Lisa is holding up?
Some of the trees are characters! Look at these two!
Everywhere in New Mexico are little villages, each with their central church. This is one we drove past. Notice the pretty tin cuppola. I found the turquoise accent color both pretty and different.
We found the letterbox and had some fun making rubbings of leaves with crayons. In the letterbox was a "hitchhiker" box. This meant that we needed to take it with us and rehide it at the next letterbox we visited.
Quarai indian ruins weren't too far away from here so we decided to go and get some sunset photos (and another letterbox that I didn't have, although Lisa did .)
The sky looked ominous. I thought the alien spaceships were coming in for a landing.
Since Quarai is an historic momument, it closes at 5PM. We got there about 4:55. However, the ranger was kind enough to allow us a few minutes for a sunset photo shoot.
