    Love the photo. The horse is a wanderer like you. When I was a child being drevin to the Jersey shore each summer (often car sick), I would imagine a horse running next to the car, free, mane flying, gracefully avoiding the obstacles on the Jersey Turnpike. So I love seeing horses run free. I began riding horses as a very mature adult and really enjoy watching them move, riderless and free.

    Thanks, Steve. Glad you like it! Fascinating info re: the Jemez Mts and the similarities as far as the tuff. I think I vieitsd them when I was there in NM. And same for the historical side of things in Anatolia equally as interesting. PS: Whenever you share a tidbit re: NM, I feel like I want to return. It is, by far, one of my favorite states!
