Notes on photos: Big brown dog with water bottle is Sara, Cowboy’s good friend, owned by neighbors Lori and Mike; sun setting behind Cabezon with plenty of wildfire smoke trapped down low; yours truly, collapsed in the lobby of La Posada after a day of touring Santa Fe with visiting sister Hope; Cowboy shading up on a morning walk; big build-up looking east from Placitas toward Montezuma Ridge.
