Autumn in New Mexico

In an earlier post I commented on the golden colors of some of the trees.  They are in the higher elevations of New Mexico too.

I spent a week camped in Cimarron Canyon.  The campground was next to a trout stream.  Downstream about 1/4 mile was a beaver pond.

Those of you who were Boy Scouts probably heard of Philmont Scout Reservation.  I did, and in my youth dreamed of going there.  It is renowned for wilderness, scenery and a superb nature experience.  In the photo below, that is Philmont in the background.  Cimarron Canyon State Park borders Philmont.  I finally got here!
