Driving into New Mexico, where one of the more frightening experiences of the cross-country trip happened. ¶ We were looking for hot springs near the Rio Grande Gorge bridge when four men appeared behind us out of nowhere, probably from a cave. They had been drinking. My adrenalin and heart-rate shot up immediately upon seeing them. ¶ I said “Get ready to jump in the river”, and then had a thought. I looked up to the cliffs high above the gorge and began shouting “John! John! We’re down here! We found the springs!” I waved and smiled. The men became surprised and a look of angry disappointment flashed on their faces as we stepped around them and climbed back up the path as fast as we could. ¶ New Mexico took on a menacing air to me after that afternoon.
Photographs that better illustrate the unbelievable size of these trees are forthcoming.
Breathtaking light that afternoon. I believe this was at Pierpont Lake. After some wonderful days in St. Paul, it was good to be back on the road.

Heading to Italy.
After reading about it (The Online Photographer - $10 Digital Camera—How Do They Do It?.), I decided to embrace constraints and see what a $10 digital camera can do. With a bit of post-processing to reduce noise, an 352x288 pixel painting emerged.
Seen in the Mission district.
