New Mexico: Lunch and Dinner off the Road

On Sunday, I had lunch here:

Turnout from the Jemez Scenic Trail (Highway 4), between Fenton Lake State Park and La Cueva, New Mexico.

Joining me were lizards; a chipmunk; some very loud, assertive, flying grasshoppers; and a hawk overhead. 


... and dinner here:

View toward Carrizozo from Valley of Fires, off Highway 380, New Mexico


Dinner was less serene than lunch, as the gnats drove me back into my car so I could eat in peace.

I enjoyed a visual digestif as I completed my drive home on Highway 54 at dusk:
