Back in the Valles Caldera



After a hiatus of several years—since the early to mid-2000s, when I collaborated with William deBuys on Valles Caldera: A Vision for New Mexico’s National Preserve—yesterday I ventured out to so some photography in the Valles Caldera again. I was hoping to find some of that magical light that so often fills the sky-bowl of the Valle Grande, and I wasn’t disappointed. In spite of the fact that many of the mountains burned severely in the Las Conchas fire, the preserve is resplendent as ever. With a background sound of bull elk bugling, I walked into the great grassland and stayed, mesmerized, until sunset.
