I was in Santa Barbara this summer, and I also went to NM (by driving through AZ), and here are some pics. Somehow I lost the cd the pics were on, and only now have I found it. Apparently, the area we stayed in was around the base of a huge-mongous dead volcano. Sorry for all the pics, I kind of got carried away with uploading...
Here's a small fraction of the volcano top (this is actually a huge area in the pic, several square miles, I think it was 60 or something.)
And a nice car lol.
And here's a random pic I uploaded from when we were in the Petrified Forest Natural Park. IT WAS HOT!
More pics to come....
