Christmas week in Laguna Vista, northern New Mexico

As we left the Chama Valley after our Christmas vacation in Laguna Vista, the Brazos Cliffs gleamed in the sun. During the week, Batgal and Tad spent lots of time baking; some light fluffy bizcochitos and some awesome chocolate chip cookies were among the results. We also keep a wood fire going for several days and enjoyed the company of Dulce indoors and some wild friends outdoor. I got in a bit of exercise shoveling lots of snow and a bit of gravel.

Buried beneath the snow, somewhere in this picture are a few boats in this view from our back door. Our Christmas holiday was more than adequately white, with snow falling during our Christmas dinner in Santa Fe and continuing for much of the following week. We eventually left the white country to celebrate New Year's eve at Elephant Butte Lake in southern NM, where there was no snow except atop some mountains on the western horizon.

A couple of corrections ... We didn't have Christmas dinner in Santa Fe, because we were snowed in up north. We had Christmas dinner Dec. 27 in Los Alamos.

We had a birthday dinner for Fuego in Santa Fe on the way south Dec. 30.
