|What's around the remote curve on unpaved NM 120 in the Sangre de Cristos?|
|"Deserted" NM 26, winding toward who knows what|
Don't say the roads are deserted, because life teems along them, from small to large. On NM 26, around one curve, I found three bucks calmly grazing at the side of the road. They didn't run. I rolled down my window and began taking photos, five feet away. Velvet still on the antlers. They knew it wasn't hunting season.
I love the roadsigns that show curves ahead, telling you to slow down. they beckon with changes of geology, of more challenges and interest.
|Yes, riders on horses in the middle of the unpaved |
"highway," NM 120.
|You can't get bored on straight stretches, because sooner of later, you're going to turn, sometimes abruptly.|
