I've done the Milk Bottle from the front, of course, but just like the moon, I was interested in seeing what's on the other side.
Cuchara Creek @ Bear Lake, CO
On the Highway of Legends, in se CO, just before you get to Cuchara on the way to La Veta...San Isabel National Forest Rd. 422, is this lovely, high altitude area. Beautiful extravagant alpine scenery in every direction. It is wonderful to breathe deeply of the cool mountain air and enjoy the peaceful music of the stream and birds.
Casita @ Ojo Caliente, NM
North of Santa Fe about an hour is the ancient hot springs. It is an oasis of soothing warm waters and quietude. Many old and new adobe accommodations are nestled in the picturesque high desert. Definitely a favorite place.
At Lake Watonga
It's wonderful to be camping, enjoying the peaceful beauty of places like Roman Nose Park, north of Watonga, OK. These aren't my old beer bottles.
Abiquiu Lake
A very magical area, first time seeing this view I knew I had to paint it.
Splitting Barn
We saw this barn on an old family property in Tennessee.
