Friends in New Mexico

Yeah, I know I’ve been slacking lately, but fall is the best season in New Mexico and I’ve been spending all day everyday outside. My friends Becky and Matt are also here visiting right now and I’ve been showing off the Land of Enchantment. This morning I took them for a hike in my big backyard:
