New Mexico – 2015

The annual Holsclaw family reunion was held in Albuquerque, NM during the first weekend of October 2015.  I decided to attend the reunion and then drive the following week around northern New Mexico.

Highlights of the trip were seeing the family, riding in a hot air balloon during the Balloon Festival, hiking the mountains around Santa Fe and Taos, exploring ancient Indian settlements at Bandolier National Park and enjoying fine food and local craft beer.

I took quite a few photos – using primarily my Fuji X100t and my iPhone 6S Plus.  During this trip, I got a good feel for the history, culture, and landscape of northern New Mexico..a truly beautiful place.
