New Mexico and Great Giveaways

I'm missing the mountains! I can't show you the 150 pictures I took to document the trip. (The joke is I have to take pictures wherever I go so I can remember I've been there!)

To list a few things that I loved about this trip:

cool temperatures ranging 40-80 degrees 
beautiful mountains
flowing streams
wildlife--deer, antelope, fox, and elk to name a few
great food
daily road trips
jeep ride

I can't help but share just one awesome picture of the elk. Now I've seen elk before but never this many in one grassy meadow off the road. We stopped counting at 250. Awesome!!


Need to check out great giveaways over at the following bloggers:

  4. Cool pictures! Glad you're back though... I missed you!

    I many need your canning advice by the way (at least I think you said you canned? I can't remember).. I had a little tomato crisis today and just about started crying. I think I did it wrong, because there was all this liquid at the bottom of the jars once they were processed and I was so mad at myself for not being able to figure it out... I have gazillions of tomatoes just about ripe and it's freaking me out!

    So really... if you are a canner... and have any good tomato canning tips, I could use them.
