And probably some pretty excellent roasted chicken dinners.Our new house is a 2BR plus loft, 2BA A-frame cabin set on one acre at the base of red rock formations on both sides, with the Jemez River across the road.The aspen are turning yellow all along the Jemez River. It's beautiful. This is the view from the house we rented today in Jemez Springs, after about 3 months of housing instability. What a relief, and what a beautiful place to be able to live. #jemezsprings #newmexico @nomadmmlodgeNew Mexico sunsets, 3. #newmexico #sunset #cloudpornNew Mexico sunsets, 2. #newmexico #jemezmountains #jemezsprings #cloudpornNew Mexico sunsets, 1.

Water for irrigation only. #ponderosaNM #neveridleI've found a new favorite mountain town. Ponderosa NM. Scrappy but in a picture book setting, and at the edge of town, the pavement ends and the road wanders deep into the mountains. #ponderosaNM #newmexico #neveridleThe kitchen in the center of the Spartan Manor, after a little bit of cleaning. #spartantrailers #vintagetrailer #spartanmanor #neveridle @nomadmotorlodge @nomadmmlodgeThe living room at the front of the 1953 Spartan Manor, after a little bit of cleaning. #spartantrailers #vintagetrailer #spartanmanor #neveridle @nomadmotorlodge @nomadmmlodgeThe end of a remarkable two days delivering a @nomadmmlodge Airstream to White Sands National Monument for a fashion shoot. 4 more hours of driving and we're finished for the day.Nice to be a passenger once in a while.
