Los Luceros

I don’t have much good to say about the pandemic. But I did discover one important thing: Even after almost 40 years, I haven’t been everywhere beautiful in New Mexico.

After a year of not being able to easily leave the state, Rich and I explored many byways. There was undiscovered beauty, remote like Sitting Bull Falls and close like Sandia Crest.

And I also realized I haven’t thoroughly enjoyed special places I’d already been to. White Sands and Carlsbad Caverns, for example yielded spectacular experiences and connection to nature, as did more intimate sites closer to home.

I’ll never tire of watching the sandhill cranes fly in at Bosque del Apache. Or looking for roadside rockets and Aliens in southern New Mexico. All of this puts my personal concerns in perspective.

Last week we went to Los Luceros for the first time. Historic building, the cascading Rio Grande, fruit trees in bud…so lovely. Bees were buzzing, Rich was walking a loop, and I was sitting on a bench looking at branches against the sky.
