Diamond Tail Ranch

This was my first tour of the back country.  I took a tour with NM Jeep Tours of Albuquerque.  It was amazing, and my guide, Roch Hart was a phenomenal interpreter of the ranch.  Yes, this was ranch, which borders the Zia Pueblo.  I don't remember how many acres it is, but I didn't even see a third of it.  Roch was a wealth of knowledge, and the off-road jeep tour was rugged, and fun.  Roch even showed me how to use my camera.  At that time, it was brand new, and I was new to digital photography.  After a Google search later, I found out that Roch is an accomplished photographer.  How embarrassing.  I have one of his wild horses photos as my desktop photo.  It's a color photo that looks infrared.  

I haven't been in touch with this company since that tour, but their website is very well done now, so business must be great.  http:\\www.nmjeeptours.com.  Check it out.  When I finally slow down in the ABQ, I plan to do another one.  

I saw petroglyphs, mountains, ghost towns and mines.  Lots of remnants from lives past.  Great experience!!
