Enjoying New Mexico's Beauty

One of the many benefits of having friends in town is that you see the sights. Today I headed into the Gila National Forest with friends James and Phil, my dad, and my half brother Lance. It was a great -- but long -- day.

Here dad and I hang out above 8,000 feet at Emory pass.

Later in the day, we went to the Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument. It is an amazing place, and it was especially great to have a Native American scholar among us (even if he studies languages of Native Americans of the Northeast). Sadly, James came down with a bug and stayed in the car while we hiked up to the dwellings.
