Sedona & Bosque del Apache


In early January, I will be heading to Sedona and then across to Bosque del Apache NWR, NM. I am looking forward to the trip and hoping for great photos.  Sedona lies in the heart of red rock country, surrounded by colorful buttes, spires, pinnacles, and canyons.  This beautiful part of the Arizona has formations with descriptive names such as ship rock, cockscomb, and cathedral rock serve as intriguing backdrops for photos.   If you love art, there are great galleries in town.  After a week in Sedona, I will head east through Arizona’s Petrified Forest & Painted Desert, overnighting in Gallup and hoping to dine at my favorite restaurant in the heart of the town – Jerry’s with great Mexican Pizza (Indian Taco). I will continue east visiting the Acoma Pueblo for photos and then old town Albuquerque, before reaching my hotel in Socorro, near Bosque del Apache NWR. In January, photo opportunities are great as its wetlands and fields of the refuge provide resting and feeding areas for thousands of sandhill cranes and snow geese plus eagles, ducks and other wildlife.  Arriving  before dawn each day I hope to capture the morning spectacle as thousands of geese rise in unison from refuge wetlands and head to nearby fields to feed.  Other great photo opportunities include eagles, hawks, ducks, coyotes and other wildlife.
