It is a fairly cool morning as we head out for a hike outside the town of Red River New Mexico. We drive for a bit until we come upon a small sign on the side of the road that designates a hiking trail. Parking the car, we grab bottles of water and our cameras.
This looks like a good trail.“Where will this take us?” we wondered.
The smell of the forest could only be described as green. Little butterflies flit around settling on the leaves of nearby plants.
We come to a bend in the trail that allows us to see the mountain views that surround us.
The trail takes us down a gradual slope where it opens up to a stream where lovely golden flowers raise their faces to the sun!
And the trail takes us further into the forest.
We stop for photo opportunities.
We come across the stream again and we cross the water.
Lovely flowers surround us. No wonder the butterflies abound in this place!
It is time to go back. What a lovely hike we have just had. Now it is time to sit and take a break!
Thank you for stopping by today! Have a great Friday!
