A Serious Case of Wanderlust – Road Trip Part 2 – New Mexico

October 25th, 2010 in Photography

I’m really not sure where this wanderlust came from, but I can’t seem to control it!  After 18 days on the road driving through New England and the Adirondacks, I’m off again. Actually stayed home for over two weeks so give me a little credit.  I didn’t even have a chance to finish and post the New England trip images yet.  There is a long winter ahead for that I guess.

I have been wanting to photograph at White Sands, New Mexico for quite awhile.  The summer is way too hot and the Fall is the perfect time.  So I drove most of the day in 30 to 40 mph winds to get down here. Hopefully the weatherman is correct and things will calm down tommorow when I get to the sands.  It’s 11 hours one way from Denver so maybe this will cure the wanderlust!

I stopped at Fort Union today to stretch my legs.  Pretty cool old adobe ruins.  This was once the largest fort in the Southwest and protected travellers along the Santa Fe trail from the Apaches.
