I am infatuated with how wide-open everything looks and feels here in New Mexico. The sky vaults over your head in an amazing way! I was struck by this motorcyclist (no- not literally), heading into a passage of light, just as you round the last corner of the Sandia mountain pass on Rt. 40, heading into Albuquerque (which replaced Rt. 66). The contrast in scale between him and the sky, and the impression of heat and asphalt really capture the essence of the road trip experience here in the southwest.
