This shot is after climbing a pretty steep, rocky incline above the resort. It was just "skipping through the daisies" for my rock goat hubbie, me, not so much, but I did it and was happy when I got up there. The rest of the hike was easy-peasy.
So we looked and looked for a village. Thinking we'd find something like the Cliff Dwellings in Southern Colorado. All we found were these curious numbered markers and a lot of pottery shards. Finally I said to Jason, "I think this is it, let's see what the map says." He didn't believe me until we got the third numbered marker....we opened the map and the markers told us where we would have been if the town was still there. (FYI-pamphlets with maps in the lobby of the Ojo Caliente resort) Seriously, it was pretty darn cool to be standing in a place where ancient peoples made their homes.
And I'm always amazed how flowers will take root and bloom. This one was intertwined with a dead tree branch.
It was a very peaceful hike. A great end to a great weekend away together.
