Every Christmas our family goes on a hike and this year we took the Englesman Loop to the old lime kilns up at Wilder Ranch (in Santa Cruz, CA). It's one of my favorites and affords a gorgeous view of the Pacific (and those golden rolling hills) on the way down.
I'm home again and excited to finally get back to knitting! I spent the last two weeks in beautiful New Mexico, visiting family in Santa Fe the first week and attending a retreat at Ghost Ranch the second. It was an amazing trip and I'm so excited to go back, next time with Eric in tow. Here are a few photos from my phone (descriptions below). Wishing I'd brought my "real" camera right now!
1 & 2. The Valles Caldera Preserve near Los Alamos. No elks were spotted in the caldera but we did see a coyote! // 3. Kelly looking pretty in front of the church at the Taos Pueblo // 4. The beautiful red canyons of Ghost Ranch // 5. A morada in Abiquiu // 5. The super classy Modern General store in Santa Fe.
