Since I had to stick around this weekend and couldn't make the Ribs & Fibs, AND had just recently purchased that Year pass to access the National Parks, I figured I'd make use of it at the local area. Kinda nice just whippin out the card and rolling right in...  Wink

I had been here before but last time out the weather then promised and provided some stormy weather and downpour for at least the return trip.

This time the weather was great, clear skies and running in the mid to upper 80's.

Here's a few shots, hope you like them.


Frijoles Creek


Actually did some hiking and some climbing this go round. Shoulda wore some shorts...


I was committed to get up into them cliff dwellings!



This shot taken from inside one of the dwellings. Interesting to imagine people living and meeting inside here.



Off to the left you can see the more man made style dwellings.




There are several more pics found on the following link. It should start at the first pic of todays run, but if not it's about halfway through the linked album if you end up starting at the beginning.

The Bandelier National Monument is about 20 miles from my place. Some bottled water and a quick n easy picnic lunch and I was all set.
