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.
