Most Beautiful Backyard

A short road trip to northwest New Mexico felt like a long way from home.  A bit higher elevation and therefore, a bit cooler.  On a visit to friends of friends, I saw the most beautiful backyard ever.  This is SOOC – not enhanced in any way!  And since it has a fence, I’ll enter it in Friday Fences.

I think I took about 87 photos of the rock formation on the left.  I was entranced – couldn’t stop shooting and they mostly all look the same!  The mesa on the right has Anasazi ruins on the top; and the mesa in the middle was sacred to pregnant women.  Historically, this is a very rich backyard.

    If I could have the backyard of my choice this would be it!
    That view is awesome!
    The style of fencing is most appropriate for the surroundings.

    This was an “Oh, my goodness!” reaction when I opened this post! Just stunning all around. How this must influence the attitude of the people fortunate enough to look on this view every day.

    No wonder you took so many pictures, your instincts are right, this is beautiful. I did the same thing with both of the Cactus Parks in Tucson. It was a “now” moment and they don’t happen that often. I will put this on my to see list, for sure.

    That’s what I enjoy about Friday’s Fences–so many different approaches to building a fence.

    The scene is so pretty and I guess I never figured to see a fence in a setting like that.

  12. Oh yes many memories of a wonderful holiday in SW USA wish I could go back….
