Bosque del Apache Landscapes

I love going to Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge. I feel very fortunate to live close enough that I can be there in about an 1 1/2 hours, which means that I can go there almost any time that I want to go. Usually I concentrate on photographing birds. Last weekend Bosque Bill and I went there, and I decided to take some photos to show what a beautiful place it is. There will still be birds, of course.

    • You will definitely have to go to Bosque del Apache. It’s a nice drive from Cruces. Be sure to come in the winter when the Sandhills and the Snow Geese are here. Happy that you like the blog. :)

  4. Oh my goodness – these are amazing photographs – what a beautiful spot and the pictures of the cranes and geese! stunning – but the sunsets are even more so. Just beautiful… I guess like all the rest of your audience I’ll have to visit and see for myself. Thanks for visiting there and sharing it with us.

  6. Beautiful photos..I especially like the waves of Snow Geese and the Sandhill Cranes at sunset! See u soon!

  7. That looks like a great place to spot birds. I love the shot of the geese and cranes flying in at sunset and the other one where they fill the sky. What a sight. Glad I found your blog through FB.

  8. We have decided to make a trip there sometime in the latter part of next month, February. Sometime after the 10th. Do you think the Sandhill Cranes will still be there??

    Thanks, Bob
