Photo Tour: Headed for Home

From Easter Island to Tucson was a series of flights, a stopover for a few days in Albuquerque (where I'd left my car), and a drive home through western New Mexico and eastern Arizona. It was a low-key end to a fantastic trip.

I left Easter Island on a beautiful morning. Here's the view from my residencial:

The five-hour flight to Santiago ended at sunset. A couple of views of the Andes from my plane window:

Back in northern New Mexico, where I grew up... this is the Santuario de Chimayo, a village church where the soil is supposed to have healing powers:

El Malpais National Monument is a volcanic landscape in western New Mexico, near the city of Grants. This is at the Sandstone Bluffs viewpoint:

US highway 60 crosses the Salt River Canyon between Show Low and Globe, Arizona... not far north of my home in Tucson. It's a spectacular place on a drive with lots of variety: from evergreen forest to desert valleys:
