N.I.O.T.G., Salas Ranch, NM

“A man’s interest in a single bluebird is worth more than a complete but dry list of the fauna and flora of a town.” –Thoreau

Nature Investigators on the Ground (Bev, Glen, Kathy) came upon a salt creek, incredible rock formations and crawling things…ending the evening with a showboat sunset.  Many thanks mother earth, father sky.

“All good things are wild and free.” –Thoreau

    • MA we must share with you just how dramatically the canyon has changed. So much water, from the wonderful rains, rushing through the ranch has scoured the rocks and carved the canyon deeper.

  2. This experience led me back to reading Wallace Stegner. He said, “We simply need that wild country available to us… For it can be a means of reassuring ourselves of our sanity as creatures, a part of the geography of hope.” Thanks Bev & Glen for supporting that hope.
