I am writing from the den, in Tyler's house, in Los Alamos, in New Mexico. I'm not going to write much because this keyboard is funny. Anyway, things have been awesome so far. We hiked along the Jemez "River" one day, up on the Valle Grande, I hiked all day with Dee's hiking group the next day on Rabbit Ridge, went on a lovely night walk by the old cliff dwellings at Bandelier National Monument, and spent all day yesterday in Santa Fe, looking at fossils, checking out the miraculous staircase in the Loretto Chapel, and saw Memoirs of a Geisha (complete eye candy, nothing more). It was also the best culinary day of my life...home-cooked meal for breakfast, fantastic New Mexican fare for lunch (green chile and prickly pear iced tea), and Thai for dinner.
I'm having lots of fun, and now I'm off to go hiking in a nearby canyon.
