Over at Philmont and back behind Cattle Headquarters….A few weeks ago two friends and I were out there in the blistering heat digging up a cholla cactus (…with permission, of course). Apparently ‘mad dogs and Englishmen’ are not the only ones fool enough to go out in the midday sun..

Still, the view of the plains and distant mesas was simply stunning!
This is my first attempt at a painting of that view. Stay tuned for another.
