So I got to go “home” to visit my Parents this last week. My Mom and Dad have retired and moved back to where I grew up. I had such a great time visiting with my parents and seeing old friends. Please enjoy my picture diary of our visit.
The Wonderful Sunrise that Greeted me as I drove to Las Cruces.

The smoke from the Gila Wilderness Wildfires made for some very dramatic sunsets. This is a shot from my parents back yard. The mountains are the Robledos looking west towards the Gila and Deming and Lordsburg.
My Mom and Dad’s new house is just amazing. My mother should have designed for “Good Housekeeping” Here is a small snippet, their breakfast nook..
“Home is the place where it feels right to walk around without shoes” Unknown
I had to go Picture hunting while I was there. Love the stucco homes and the vivid colors of all of the old buildings.
“One may have a blazing hearth in one’s soul and yet no one ever come to sit by it. Passersby see only a wisp of smoke from the chimney and continue on the way.” Vincent Van Gogh
My Dad even got into the game of “Picture Hunting” We took a drive to the desert and found this amazing Hawk perched up on a Yucca, I had forgotten my SD card and we drove back to get it and came back and the Hawk was still there.. I am very fortunate. The mountains in the background are the Organs looking North towards Albuquerque. The smoke was so bad, there was never a day I could get a good picture of them.
A Great candid shot of My Dad
“No matter under what circumstances you leave it, home does not cease to be home. No matter how you lived there-well or poorly.” ~ Joseph Brodsky
This was one clear day that I got to get this amazing shot of Picacho Peak. The sky is always so Blue there.
My Drive back to DFW I found some really cool shots right before Van Horn TX.
I had such an amazing visit. I am so excited to share my views of “home” with all of you. I really hope you enjoyed it as much as I love this place.
