Magic is Afoot - La Junta Point

My amazement is oft preceeded by skepticism and so it was as we wended our way through the steppe between the Gorge and the Taos mountains. 

But then, as the edge appeared through the juniper-pinyons, I saw that, once again, magic had been afoot.

There, below us, was the confluence of the Red River and the Rio Grande. Pictures only hint at the grandeur.

The road is signed Not Suitable for Passenger Vehicles. There's no way to know whether to give credit to the warning, but it was nice to have it to ourselves.

That is absolutely gorgeous. I don't think I'd ever leave.
