NEAR CHICO


Chico, NM,  is situated at the entrance of a recently designated state wildlife area.  I was there in late August last year, did some plein air work and took photos.  This is from one of those.

This has become a favorite area for me.  It is starkly beautiful and challenging......arid, hot, difficult terrain.   I remember at mid day trying to situate an umbrella on a tree branch to gain some shade, working against a breeze, and my tripod on a down hill slope.
Loved it!
