Cliff Jumping in the Jemez

No photos of actual jumping. I did get a few jumping pix, and I took many more water/kid/tribe pix, but I've already spent way too much on the computer this lovely day, so I'm calling it done with these! We had a fabulous time. The two-mile hike was beautiful, with about a dozen river crossings, so we had lots of water time. The views were fantastic. The drive home was so much fun, singing to the radio, talking, and enjoying the view of Sandia at sunset from an angle we seldom see. Just a lovely day from start to finish!

Andy was in heaven, and spent most of his afternoon in the VERY cold water!

proof that it was very cold -- Dan is shivering!

Old Town Ghost Tour

Recently, we spent an evening -- a lovely, cool, rainy, stormy evening -- on a personal ghost tour of Albuquerque's Old Town. We had a great time, even when the sky opened up and glorious rain poured down on us!Andy, at the bottom of a staircase where, stories say, a young woman's ghost jumps out and pushes people down the stairs.

Gary, being funny -- and cute!

Andy jumped out to scare the others during the Story of the Red Hand, about a woman who axed her cheating fiance to death -- and got away with it!

More story-telling

I love this photo -- Andy has such a beautiful laugh!

Emma & Dan using the ouija board. The kids really enjoyed that one!
