Getting to the woods

What a horrible day today with those morning attacks on London. All I could do was watch the news and read the message board. We dragged ourselves out of the house and drove up the Santa Fe mountain in the afternoon to have a picnic lunch and then hike the Borrego trail to Big Tesuque Creek. To remind ourselves of what is right with the world. It was a nice 3 mile hike through lovely woods with a good climb (and my lungs about to burst out of my body) and a river at the turn around point.

A perfect meadow just over the river.
