Bosque del Apache was not on my travel list this year and I miss it. The Snow Geese and Sandhill Cranes are everywhere. It is such a unique experience and seeing thousands of birds in the air at once and hearing the roar of their calls and their wingbeats is unforgettable. When the cranes fly into their nighttime roost, like this one backlit by the setting sun, those New Mexico skies make for some spectacular visions. Bosque is calling to me. I’m glad I have some gorgeous memories in my photographs and hope to return again to see this wonder of the natural world.
