Chiles, Chiles, And More Chiles

Chiles, chiles, and more chiles coming soon and roasting somewhere near you. If you love fresh roasted chiles, peeling them and putting them up for fall and winter then you know what I’m talking about. We went through 90 lbs of chiles last winter. We are now out of chiles and can’t wait to see them roasting on almost every street corner. I exaggerate, of course, but I can smell them roasting somewhere from almost every street corner in town. Bring on the harvest. We’ll be doubling our stash this winter. Thanks for looking. G

Tumbleweed Corner, Estaca, NM

Tumbleweed Corner, Estaca, NM. Not as large as some of the specimens seen whipping around the valleys and mesas. I have seen these entities adorned with scraps of paper, embedded with plastic grocery bags, water bottles and bits of sage brush. Around these parts they have been referred to, affectionately, as “mesa street sweepers”. Where one or more is gathered there will be others. Thanks for looking. G

Chapel of Nuestra Señora de los Dolores Cañon, Taos

Chapel of Nuestra Señora de los Dolores Cañon, Taos NM. One cross many shadows. This little chapel is adorned with at least nine crosses on the outside. If one counts them and all the shadows, then I’m sure this is a very blessed place, and iconic New Mexicana. Always a favorite stop on a photo tour. Thanks for looking. G
