|The Pecos Wilderness peaks|
Yesterday I flew home to Sacramento from the Mississippi Gulf Coast where I grew up in the early 1960s. I spent the 1970s in the San Francisco Bay Area and in Taos in northern New Mexico. The Taos-Santa Fe area is about halfway along a straight line between San Francisco and my boyhood home in Long Beach Mississippi. Flying and driving along this "transect" for the last forty-six years I've come to view this stretch of the earth as a spiritual pilgrimage.
I chose a seat on the north side of the plane so I might get a God's Eye view of the very special Sangre de Cristo Mountains I've explored with my Taos friend David Witt. Here are the views I came away with.
