...and the New Mexico photo-thon continues.  Maybe it's my East Coast upbringing, but I'm constantly amazed by the seemingly endless Southwestern horizon. 

On a side note, I'm thrilled by the revival of winklepickers.  Not only are they fun to say, but they're pretty damn fantastic to look at, too.  Currently prowling the Internets for the perfect pair...

  6. The background is amazing! Winklepickers are like elven rock 'n roll boots/shoes! I'm not usually a fan of the pointy toe but for those, I can make an exception. :)

  49. I have that dress! You look so...completely American here, I'm dazzled. The photo with the long road behind you, and of course that stunning last picture; wow. I have a hardcore love of the West. It's one of my fantasy landscapes. Moreso because I know I couldn't ever live there permanently -- I realized when I spent a summer in California that I'm firmly an East Coaster. But that doesn't dim the awe and pleasure I take in those landscapes.

    Anyway, you look enchanting, as always.
