Today's trek will be to the Bandolier National Monument, about an hour's drive from Santa Fe. But first, our previously enjoyed cowboy boots - Kevin's are brown, mine are aqua/black.
Now north to Bandolier. They had a terrible forest fire at the end of June, followed by flash floods. As a result, the park has been closed for three months and only recently re-opened. There is only one trail available to walk but it's a good one. The day is hot, clear, sunny, gorgeous. Here are some shots from the monument. This was occupied for about 400 years and abandoned in the mid 1500's when the people ran out of resources.
