Pecos Stone Yurt. Legend has it the guy who built this place did it barefoot, wearing only a lion cloth, almost exclusively from materials found on site. There's no electricity, no running water and no driveway. You have to hike in.
Days don’t get better than today. I’m a bit sun stroked, but I spent all day long outside on one of the most gorgeous days I’ve ever seen in New Mexico, and that’s a high bar. This morning, I met some friends in the Pecos Mountains for a hike, then came home and met my neighbor Ashley in the Big Arroyo for an evening hike. Here’s to making the most of a beautiful day!
Inside the yurt: stone fireplace, wood stove & loft. My friends are going to put in a good word with the owner for me. He hasn't lived here in years and I'd love to spend some time here!

Pecos Shack. The same guy built this wooden shack first, then the yurt. My friend Steve said, "Yeah, he made some mistakes with this one, but hippies learn by doing."
Takes one to know one, Steve...

Back in Cerrillos, heading South, towards the Ortiz Mountains, to meet Ashley in the Big Arroyo. The white streaks are mineral deposits in the roadbed.
