The hummingbirds left Tijeras two days ago. There were only one or two juveniles left, and then they were gone. Time for me to move on as well.
After a month of non-stop guests and events, I am now on my way south — albeit with a short side trip to the north to Santa Fe.
Mike and I came here in early October years ago. When I picked up the photos we’d taken from the processor (talk about the old days), he said: What corner of paradise were you in?
Today hiking in a golden aspen grove all alone, I truly felt like I was in paradise.
To give credit where credit is due, the photo below was taken two weeks ago in Colorado.
