1. Hiking in El Malpais

    18 Jun 2021
    Continuing my landscape journey with the DP Merrill trio, I took an 80-minute drive out west,  halfway to the New Mexico-Arizona border. This part of the state is called El Malpais (lit: ”bad country/lands, in Spanish). It gets its name from the lava flows that dot the region.…

    02 Jun 2021
