Kitchen Mesa

Here it is!!!!  The very last of my photos from my New Mexico trip in March.  Ah sigh.... god that was a blast.

The last full day in New Mexico, we hiked Kitchen Mesa in Ghost Ranch.  It was AH-MAZING!  Seriously, breathtaking.  Ever seen a Georgia O'Keeffe landscape painting???  Kitchen Mesa was the inspiration behind them.  She lived right outside of Ghost Ranch, and frequented Kitchen Mesa.  It's a pretty short hike, but it's definitely the most beautiful landscape I've ever seen.  These rocks are about a hundred different colors, and the sky is a crazy pretty blue.

This was quite the epic day for me, as a lady afraid of heights.  I literally had some life frightening scares with the climb up the mesa.  Ropes and jagged rocks!!!  Oh my.......  I had to belt out some "I'm Every Woman" when I got to the top.  ha! 

Totally worth it in the end though.
