Las Cruces!

I love New Mexico. I wish I could spend weeks, or even months, exploring! The Environmental Education Association of New Mexico meeting has been splendid. This state has some incredible riches in terms of the people who care about the environment and connecting children with nature! I'm proud to have been the keynote speaker at this excellent event.

I haven't done much birding yet. I've seen two roadrunners, one when I was driving with a car coming up FAST behind me, and one during the brief time I left my camera in the car, so no photos yet. But I have gotten a few shots of gamboling (not gambling) Gambel's Quails. Imagine such a splendid species being a backyard bird!
