Landscapes of Bosque and Surrounding Area


Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge in New Mexico is best known for the cranes and snow geese that spend the winter months there.  I enjoyed the birds, but was also impressed by the colors and light on its land and trees, and by the nearby New Mexico landscape.   Here are some of my favorite Bosque landscape images as well as some from nearby San Lorenzo Canyoun and some from the Salinas Valley Pueblo mission ruins of Abo' and Gran Quivira.
