 Outside of Payson, AZ, a sign alerted me to a "Paleo Site." Turned out to be a fossil digging site. http://www.adventurenuts.com/Paleo-Site.html

 Here is what they looked like a few days later when I cleaned them up a little.

 I noted on Instagram at the time: Like most ppl w/eyes, I came to like O'Keeffe's work for the flowers & the colors but on this day, visiting her museum, when I wrote down my favorites, there were 6 of leaves, 1 barn, 1 lake and only 1 flower. Was also listening to her bio audiobook on this trip. Think this is the bio I read as HS frosh. The details of her life made huge impression back then. The choices she made as a woman and woman artist, her resistance to over-intellectual art criticism (esp Freudian analysis), her statement that she always wore black because "colors do something to me."
       
     
 Also was reading "Death Comes for the Archbishop."

A young friend in Seattle is a train fan, and New Mexico is a good place for train action.
