Magical landscapes – Arizona and New Mexico

From a recent road trip through our state of Arizona and neighboring New Mexico.  I’ve heard people say how desolate some of the landscape is in these two states, but all I see is magic.

Bandelier National Monument, New Mexico

People lived here once, some 11,000 years ago.

There was snow too, and it added to the magic.

Petroglyph National Monument, Albuquerque – New Mexico

Art on the rocks.  These rock carvings are some 4-7 centuries old by Native Americans and Spanish settlers.

Magdalena, New Mexico

In New Mexico there is a town, a little town, named Magdalena.  Just like my daughter.  And before she even existed, long long time ago, my husband and I stayed there.
