I took a little trip to the southwestern US and it was breathtaking.

I rode the tramway up to the tippy top of Sandia mountian, which means watermelon.

And this is why:

It turns pink in the sunset.

I also had the amazing opportunity to visit a closed pueblo (Jemez) and view some programming. I met some amazing people and ate some incredible food. Out of respect for, and preservation of, their culture–no pictures are allowed on the pueblo. But trust me, it was just awesome.

We even made up to Santa Fe for an afternoon and ate at a little place called the Shed. This is an enchilada with some pork on it. Um, yeah. Pretty darn amazing.

All and all a pretty amazing trip. I am one lucky duck.
