From the foreword by Taos Author John Nichols:

In this collection of images, Geraint Smith has given us a view of the Rio Grande del Norte area that is sublime.
The view can be subdued and delicately poetic … or truly sensational.

Quotes from the book:

The natural beauty of the rivers that flow through spectacular landscapes, inhabited by an abundance of wildlife, is perhaps the common denominator that continues to inspire people who live here as well as those visiting for the first time.

Over time things change; often unnoticed are things that remain the same.

Transformation happens quickly on the Mesa and compels a close look.

Old corrals scattered across the plateau are dilapidated memorials to the large sheep herds that once grazed the Mesa’s grasslands.

To see all or any of these magnificent creatures, the  intimate details of nature, and the vast landscapes and canyons we share, I encourage you to venture into The Rio Grande del Norte with reverence and wonder. The adventure just might change your life.
