Piñon and Juniper Trees

The Western New Mexico hills are covered with piñon and juniper trees, trees I've loved all my life. Sunday afternoon we took the time to explore a new dirt road up into hilly country. The fall light was golden and intense as the evening approached, casting long shadows from the vegetation across the grass. 

It was nice to sit in the cool air and sketch out a gentle slope and catch the colors I saw before we headed back to the highway. We'd rather do that than go out on the town any day. The only camera I have available today is my phone camera, but hopefully you get the idea. 

Thanks for stopping by!  Alice
