big ups to the gatherin’ place for providing us with delectable pulled pork sammies & tasty flaky sumptuous pies! big hearts and hearty laughter made us seriously consider delaying our departure from magical #newmexico 🌞🍖🍰🏜 #vacaymemories #pietown #peargingerpie #coconutbuttermilkpie #nomsplural #roadtrippin #thedreamwithinthedreamisreal
looking back on the amazing altering haunting experience that was/is #walterdemaria 's #thelightningfield and practicing much self-restraint as a photog by respecting not only the work itself, but also the (albany, ca-native) artist’s wishes of no photography, video, or recording.
the gifts were granted just in being present amongst the raw brush and dust, the scattered wildlife and flora, the blazing sun and the full haunting moon…we engaged with the infinite and remained open to all incoming transmissions. 👩🏼🎤💕👨🏼🎤✨🏚🌄🏞🌌📵📡🌀 #vacaymemories #roadtrippin #diaartfoundation #natureboosh #thedreamwithinthedreamisreal

post-hurtle out from the open desert brush, and emerging from the delicious cascade of near-silence of nature, we found ourselves in a local gem of a breakfast nook diner which had all the details. 🌞☕️🍳👴🏻📲✨ #vacaymemories #roadtrippin #brekkies #morningrituals #thedreamwithinthedreamisreal
we arrived by the afternoon, heading in through a dusky winding road. the soft dirt blazed reds and browns, and we for a time were the only humans in the vicinity.
when sunset finally reached its lengthy arms across the brush, the full and open moonrise gleamed brightly, up and over the nearby hills.
overnight we slept with the fly off the tent, resolute to bathing in the celestial reflections, and into the early hours of the morning, we broke camp and left little traces of our presence. 🚙🏜⛺️🌄🌌🌝 #cosmiccampground #roadtrippin #vacaymemories #moocows #sleepingbymoonlight #natureboosh #thedreamwithinthedreamisreal
we walked above the earth and below the sky, surveying the nature of nature. blue skies with dappled clouds, babbling brooks from where flash floods and volcanic rock flowed. everything was still and luminous in those shadows, and we moved through often in a gleeful hushed silence. 🌊🌲🌋🏞🌞 #vacaymemories #natureboosh #catwalk #statepark #roadtrippin #thedreamwithinthedreamisreal
looking back on early morning hot springs soak, a myriad of horsefriends in the sunshine, and our proper entrance into the thick of the forest. 🌞🌫🐴🐻🔥🌲 #hotsprings #horsechooms #smokeythebearismyhomie #rangerstationdecorations #roadtrippin #vacaymemories #thedreamwithinthedreamisreal
entering by evening, by thunderous rainstorm and ominous cloud cover, we patched the tent and made a simple dinner, before setting up and enjoying nature evolving before our eyes.
come the morning, numerous curious creatures came to welcome us to the morning’s light. ⛈🏕🥘🌧🐌🌞✨ #vacaymemories #roadtrippin #isthisglamping #natureboosh #snailpower #thedreamwithinthedreamisreal

beautiful mysteries in these cave’d cliff dwellings. evidence of human habitation echoing from the deep past. got held up by rangers because of a passing lightning storm, and it was a great opportunity to linger and learn. we have been on the earth so long, and still seek out the answers to our questions. 🌋👥🏜👥⛈👥🌄 #roadtrippin #gilanationalforest #mogollon #14thcentury #cliffdwelling #wheredidwecomefrom #wheredowegofromhere
