My morning walk

Or, as some puppy owners call it, "walkies."

I finally remembered to take the camera on our regular 6:30 am morning walk.

Unfortunately, it was overcast this morning--unusual for New Mexico--and so isn't as pretty as most days.

We start from our driveway and go up a wooded mountain path.

This is high desert, so the conifer woods are also prickly-pear woods and yucca woods.

We encounter rocks to climb, then a logging road and The View.

This ugly metal barn-like thing is what's behind me as I look at The View. (Not so lovely.)

Then back down the hill to home. About a 25-minute walk.

It's very lovely (all except the shed). :) And what of the pup? What does he think of it?

What a lovely walk! I live in such an urban area that to get to any sort of natural space I have to drive. I really miss living right up against the woods.

I saw "The Queen" last night, and she used the word, "walkies." Very cute!
