NW of Taos, New Mexico
I decided to take a hike around the rock outcropping rather than to climb it.
No need to take unnecessary risks at this stage of my life.
I always find these geographical survey markers and they are old, sometimes 100 plus years old.
This one was pounded into the ground only 2 years ago.
Then remember the Indian Marker tree in Oklahoma?
This is our modern day version.
Possible a young elk?
I saw this boulder perched high upon a ridge.
I had to go up and see it.
So much for my not climbing.
Strange how erosion works.
Since I was up there may as well take in the view.
Oh back in the day I would have scrambled up all of these.
