In the pit of what was once a smoldering, fiery hell. For a second I imagined being shoved in and becoming molten, insanely hot, goo.  Oh well. Haha

Moved to Colorado in 1993 ... It still amazes me ...The turn of Summer to Fall is always bittersweet and both so beautiful ...#mountainfall#mountainclouds#southerncolorado#sangredecristomountains #mountainliving #aspens #southwestliving #santafe #colorado
I'll climb these beasts one day. Whether individually or one big traverse. 
Little Bear Peak > Blanca Peak > Ellingwood Point as seen from the summit of Mt. Lindsey

The first light on the Rockies this morning was out of this world ! Even our customers were taking pictures! #sangredecristomountains #rockymountains #happypeople #mountainpeople #sawmill #treefarm #wood  #beams #post #timber #logs #grownincolorado #madeincolorado #agriculture #trees #saplings
The aspens are changing already 🍂🍁 -- plus their rustling leaves warned us of an incoming storm that prematurely ended @smallhousebigworld 's and my hike with hail. Next time, we'll make it to the top!

Last night I said goodby to my friend, Summer... and then this morning I was greeted by Summer's next door neighbor, Autumn. I get along with Autumn pretty well too 😉¡Feliz Otoño! 🍂#autumnalequinox

There are loads of these beautiful crystalline rocks 💎 on the property of our little casita here in the hills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. I’m guessing that these stones are what make the soil sparkle and why this mountain range reflects so much light. Do any of you know if these are quartz or pink feldspar, or perhaps a combination? The Sangre de Cristo Mountains are the southernmost starting point the Rocky Mountains.

This was the first of many spectacular views on my weekend hike with @smallhousebigworld in the Sangre de Cristina Mountains. That's the San Luis Valley in the distance.

I ❤️this picture 😍
I was cleaning up the garden and was trying to get an "artistic" shot (meaning not straight on..unusual for me) of the "sunflowers on steroids" that are blooming now...The #nmskies are beautiful, there is Fall in the air, I didn't even realize the 🐝 was coming in for a landing and the 🌻's are gorgeous! From this angle, you wouldn't even know those mountains are over 10,000 ft! Glorious Backyard!! We are so lucky! ⛰🌻🐝❤️ #264_deceiving #365_today #santafenm #simplysantafe #santafeartscommission #sangredecristomountains #travelnm #nmnomad #nmoutside #puresw #purenm #fallisintheair #gramofenchantment

Turned a corner and came face to face with this guy on the trail. Luckily for me I had my camera out and ready to go. #willowlake #sangredecristomountains#sanluisvalley #colorado #liveyouradventure #goatworthy
We had a very exciting day on Crestone Peak that started with a beautiful warm morning and ended with a foggy thunder snow storm that moved in very fast. Luckily when that happened we were in the Cottonwood Lake basin. To get back to our camp we still had to re-climb Broken Hand Pass. After a little while we thought the worst of the storm had passed, so we continued moving towards safety. Halfway up, we heard multiple claps of thunder right behind us. Our choices were to keep moving up to 13,000' or run down towards the lake. Long story short, I got to climb the pass 1.5 times which was soul crushing. To add insult to injury, storm magically disappeared after we got to the other side. We had blue skies and friendly wispy clouds, as if nothing ever happened. Sangres never disappoint with their weirdness - weather, UFO's, creepy locals, ya know what I mean?!

Little Bear has the cutest name out of all 14ers, however there is nothing cute about this dangerous mountain. The Hourglass is very steep and smooth, with loose rock above it. Somehow I still had great time climbing this peak in good company. Not having to deal with Lake Como Road any time soon is a huge bonus 😁

You may say I'm a dreamer,
But I'm not the only one ✌️#lennon

Can't complain about this after work backyard view! 🏔

There is no still shot that even approximates the amazingness of being atop Santa Fe Baldy. Frankly, this video doesn't do it justice either - but the sounds of my panting after summiting and roar of the ferocious wind make it a bit more authentic.

Backcountry hiking kicked my 🐝hind this past weekend, but the views and experience far outweighed the struggle. More photos to come this week!

Not a bad back yard for the weekend. Had a great time camping with @smallhousebigworld in the Sangre de Cristos!

Raising the Rockies. 
The summit of Crestone Peak 14,295'. 90 million years in the making. One moment in time. 
The 26th highest peak in North America. 
The 7th highest peak Colorado. 
4,534' prominence.

The mountain range we are in is the Sangre de Cristos.  Wikipedia says, "According to tradition, "sangre de Cristo" were the last words of a Catholic priest who was killed by Indians." Another version says he saw an alpineglow as he was dying. Our guide on a raft trip mentioned the rocks looking blood red under certain lighting conditions.  Crosses are a great reminder.

The early morning light falls on the saddle of Humboldt Peak. Obstruction Peak, UN 13,799', center, is so called for blocking the view of Challenger Point, Kit Carson Peak and Columbia Point. The north eastern ridge line of Crestone Peak spans across the foreground, with hues of red granite shimmering between the shadows

bull of the woods half marathon -- such a breathtaking (literally) sky race!  this one was for funsies, but still went better than i thought it would...2 hours & 42 minutes.  not bad for having a cold 🤧& for never having run a race at this distance before. 🤷‍♂️ also, taos is amazing.

@cj_sheehan mountain biking up on the Alamos Vista trail in the Sangre de Cristo mountains above Santa Fe, New Mexico in the late afternoon under glowing Aspens. For this image I hauled up a few @elinchrom_ltd ELB 1200 battery-powered strobes to light Chris up and make a more dramatic image. These days it is so hard to make your images stand out from the pack but putting in the extra effort and shooting with strobes is one of the ways to help make your work stand out. #elinchrom  #mountainbiking #sangredecristomountains #singletrack #santafe #newmexico

For Throwback Thursday, here's a painting I made about 10 years ago. While driving to the Fechin Ranch and art facility near Taos, New Mexico, my husband and I stopped to see and photograph the Sangre de Cristo Mountains as they turned red reflecting the light of the setting sun. I then painted the scene during a workshop taught by William Hook.
