This is red rock country in Jemez, New Mexico. I can still remember vividly the first time I visited the Jemez and my immersion into red rock country as I drove through the Jemez Pueblo. What a thrill! Coming from the eastern coast of the United States where all dirt is brown, seeing red rock country was a thrill. Whenever I need an immersion into the joys of lush green flora and red rock, I take a leisurely drive along the Jemez Trail. When I shot this photo, there was a storm brewing that added a moody feel to the sky.
