Northern NM Road Trip: Bisti and Angel Peak
A short road trip through Northern New Mexico included a stop at The Black Place (made famous by Georgia O’Keeffe), a hike at Bisti Wilderness, and an overnight camp at Angel Peak Scenic Area. The two latter places are managed by the BLM. What we saw was slightly different then the tour books and BLM website photo galleries.

More like what the BLM website shows for the Angel Peak Scenic Area… of course, minus the noise.
