For this road trip we made sure to visit New Mexico. Been all around it many times, and quite close ... but never across the state line.
We were making our way from Interstate I-40 towards Taos ... our ultimate destination for several days there in this state, but wanted to see a lot more of the land, so taking the back route through the mountains was our plan. Here we were heading towards Las Vegas, New Mexico on US Route 84 to get to the mountains, and was treated to this colorful view with some recent rains filling the Pecos River as it flows out of New Mexico Mountains and across into Texas.
Using the CPL filter, the glare went away from the sun, and some great red water color came really to life. Loved this view under the blue sky and greenery along the water's edge. A gem there along the road in the desert land heading towards the mountains of New Mexico.
