Soda Dam, #NewMexico. It looks and smells like a #prehistoric monster! Natural #rockformation and #geology wonder built by layers and layers of minerals. #TeamCanon with the #CanonEOS T7i and my “vintage” EFs 10-22mm lens. #newmexicotrue #thisiswhyihike via Instagram https://ift.tt/2GEcISm

#RealLife -Not all #hiking shots are pretty, but I still love this one. When I #hike, I carry first aid, rattlesnake bite protection, protection, water, jacket, too much camera gear....and #TinyDog. She will #neverstopexploring and hiking on her @ezydogusa leash, but she does like the better vantage point when she takes a ride on my shoulders. #TeamCanon T7i & iPhone for the shot. . . . #thisiswhyihike #unlikelyhikers #hikenewmexico #newmexicotrue #nmoutdoors #canonbringit #hikingwithdogs #dogsofinstagram #chihuahua via Instagram https://ift.tt/2I5UNRQ

Before the Falls -Most people are in awe of the natural #rockformation and #geology wonder that is Soda Dam, but the other side of the formation is just as spectacular. Special Benchmark had to be drilled into the location as the minerals and erosion probably destroyed previous ones. #TeamCanon exploring the #SantaFe #NationalForest with the #CanonEOS T7i & EFS 10-22mm. #newmexicotrue #hiking via Instagram https://ift.tt/2ISJ1v5

When your #panorama just won’t do a scene justice. Someone’s been building a serious #rocksculpture #mandala up on the Piedras Marcadas. #thisiswhyihike #hiking #neverstopexploring #found #abandoned #blackandwhite via Instagram http://ift.tt/2IBZJyG

Since #mymiserabledogatbeautifulplaces got retired from hiking, he’s been a bit of a shut-in. Here’s some photos of me making him enjoy a #dayatthepark with me and Pepper the #TinyDog. We hid some #paintedrocks in #RioRancho. Yes, he did try to eat them. #lovemydogs #dogsofinstagram via Instagram http://ift.tt/2pltAmp

Taking part in the #paintedrocks movement that’s really big out here in the #southwest. Dropped one at the picnic table of the WESST Enterprise Center. #findme #treasurehunt #hidden #neverstopexploring via Instagram http://ift.tt/2InWrPz

Well, that’s not #creepy AF. If you wear a #tinfoilhat like I do, you know 11:11 has a lot of #weird #paranormal ties. Yet someone put some #cairns at the top of the #canyon with those numbers. Have you ever been #spooked by something #eerie on the #trail? #morninghike #albuquerque #thisiswhyihike #getoutside #neverstopexploring #found #nature #hikenewmexico via Instagram http://ift.tt/2Hu4f0Z

We’re sitting on top of a foothill watching a pack of coyotes intently. Damn creatures have been very active this year, so I gotta protect my little Coyote Burrito. #hiking #hikingwithdogs #happytraildogs #thisiswhyihike #unlikelyhikers #southwest #newmexico via Instagram http://ift.tt/2tzDJRB

“Om...Bark-Bark...Ommm...” #TinyDog meditates next to a #zen rock sculpture in the middle of the Piedras Marcadas Canyon. Dirty Paws little ruffian still had time on our hike for some model shots. #yourmomentofzen #lovemydogs #chihuahua #hiking #igersabq #thisiswhyihike #nature #cairns #neverstopexploring #adventureisoutthere #southwest #hikingwithdogs via Instagram http://ift.tt/2CYMXGD

#Found - Need some #rockhound help. There is ALOT of this in my area of #NewMexico (Rio Rancho). I’ve heard answers ranging from chert to #agate to #flint. It’s #translucent but murky, sharp as heck, and has little clouds in it. Ranges from white-clear, pinky-cloud, Black, and black white like this one.
