This past weekend me and the wife wanted to check out some new parts of New Mexico west of Albuquerque. So we headed out Saturday for a night in the desert.
We made out way through two track roads passed New Mexico ranches that no longer had inhabitants, just the lasting mark of there history.
We made camp 63 miles from the nearest highway, in some high cliffs surrounded by big rocks. Searching around the rocks we found numerous rock shelters that could of been from Indians or a lone cowboy trying to get away.
After walking around we made our way to a abandoned rock house.
We encountered a few rattlesnakes to add to our dinner.
Fun fact rattlesnakes are also used as clan animals in some Native American cultures.
