"Tie Dye and Sky" - #EchoAmphitheater is a natural amphitheatre located in Rio Arriba County, in northern New Mexico. As you drive into the day use area you're surrounded by painted rocks (shown) and hardy scrub trees. #nofilter #hiking #unlikelyhikers #newmexicotrue #purenewmexico #newmexico_igers #travelnewmexico #dukecityigers #travel #505 #abqphotos #outdoors #neverstopexploring #ipulledoverforthis #getoutside #secretplaces #nature #nomad #newmexicoskies #blueskies #clouds via Instagram http://ift.tt/2sLZ4FM

"LookOut" -Our thoughts are with #NewMexico Forest Rangers & Firefighters fighting the #CajeteFire right now. We cautioned about #firesafety earlier this week 😢😦😭. Here's Bender and Pepper exploring a burn scar area of the #jemeznationalforest. #CanonFanPhoto with the #CanonEOS SL1 and EF 28mm. #onlyyoucanpreventforestfires #nmnomad #unlikelyhikers #hikingdogsofinstagram #nmoutside #findyourpark #hiking #nature #dukecityigers via Instagram http://ift.tt/2sguqlg

#onlyyoucanpreventforestfires -#TinyDog Pepper lending a paw to #SmokeyTheBear this summer. She walked right up to this camp firepit and donated some liquid lady business. There were 30 unattended fires (including smoldering campsites) in the #Jemez Forest last Memorial Day. Pepper kindly asks you all to not burn down her #forest, ya jerks. #findyourpark #hikingdogsofinstagram #campingwithdogs #neverstopexploring #unlikelyhikers #chihuahua #chihuahuasofinstagram via Instagram http://ift.tt/2s8HdWQ

"The Long way Down" - was #rockscrambling a cliff in the Jemez Forest & Scenic Byway when I spotted this sight below me. Looks like it drove right off the cliff I was climbing. 70-ish foot drop plus pretty rocky terrain below. Impromptu shot with my #Canoneos SL1 off the edge & between the rocks because I'm pretty sure it's a crime scene, plus some guy scared me off. #neverstopexploring #Found #crimescene #abandoned #wrecked via Instagram http://ift.tt/2s4Fvpo

1.3 miles -It got too hot, too early today. Which sucked for me, but definitely sucked for #TinyDog who always #hikes in a black fur coat. She drank 1/2 a bottle of water (that's alot!) and I dumped the rest on her. I have an #ospreypacks full of water and rocks, and a 5 gal bucket full of petrified wood but I'm still Carrying her the last mile to the car so she doesn't get heat exhaustion 😥🤕😫. Stay cool, stay hydrated, and try to get your dog hikes done b4 it hits above 85* degrees. #hikingwithdogs #fatgirlshiking #unlikelyhikers #hiking #NewMexico via Instagram http://ift.tt/2sReVQR

#Messyhair #LensFlare #DontCare. Sometimes this little cellphone #camera surprises me. Not too bad for a backlit #selfie. #hiking the #RioPuerco #likeaboss. And by boss I mean I'm a dummy, my real camera is in my #osprey backpack along with my desert rock hunting tools. via Instagram http://ift.tt/2qHqWLi

I need #rockhound help? I was #rockcollecting at my usual #petrifiedwood location in Rio Rancho ( #NewMexico ) this #weekend when I found these two rocks. The one piece has little brown streaks like icicles inside it, and goes down to an almost translucent gray-purple. I don't know what it is, but I'm in love with it. Anyone want to give me a clue? The smaller piece in the corner just has the little brown icicle lines in it. #rockhounding #gemsandminerals #geology #geologyrocks #crystal #Found #TBT via Instagram http://ift.tt/2su3tJY
