Bosque de Apache & VLA

Posted on February 22, 2014

A nice little valentines weekend trip.

Spent the weekend in Santa Fe and Socorro. Jeff and I visited the Bosque del Apache on a day when there were no birds. It was beautiful. I was a little disappointed to miss the mass leap into the air of thousands of screeching winged things. Then again, the sound is a little scary. It might be fine that I missed it this time.

The rest of the day was spent at the VLA. I have always wanted to go, but it seemed out of the way. I am glad that I was able to see it at least once in my life.
