At the Gila Cliff Dwellings

Here are a couple of shots I took last August when we hiked up to the Gila Cliff Dwellings. The first one looking toward one of the caves:

And, the second looking out from one of them (actually, it looks like it's probably the same cave):

Pretty cool, eh?

A few hummers

Dad will like these. More shots from my trip to New Mexico. We stopped for lunch at the Breathe Inn on our way to the Gila Cliff Dwellings and admired the hummingbirds feeding out on their front deck. To wit:

And:

I like that his head is in sharp focus but the "rest of him" is moving so much you can barely see his wings...and his tail feathers are all spread out but not quite in focus. And, finally:

That's the only decent shot I got of an orange hummer. There weren't many of 'em out as I recall.
