Desert Flower -- Madrid, New Mexico
Did the drive from Albuquerque to Santa Fe down rural route 14 and stopped a few times to take some shots. Saw this little bit of color that stood out from all the desert brown. Can't imagine having to traverse that expanse on foot or horseback without water. Route 14 goes through the town of Madrid, where the movie Wild Hogs, with John Travolta, had its climatic confrontation. I thought the town was a Hollywood fiction, but it does exist, as does the dinner where they faced down the motorcycle gang. More on that later.....
