The ruins of Abó

Filed under:General — eric @ 2:57 am

On a Sunday evening, Lyson and Chris and I made it to the ruins of Abó just as the sun was setting, but moments before the entry gate was closed. These photos document the sunset, turning red with the first wafts of California fire smoke drifting into central New Mexico, playing with the rough red sandstone masonry of the ruins.


  1. I’ve never heard of these…darn…T would have liked them.

  2. Since Eric went and made ‘em all topical, I’ll be sure to post my shots of Abo and Gran Quivara tonight, on my page. Just to help frame the whole picture for you here, I’ll note that the trip to Abo finished about 1 minute after sunset, when the park ranger came over to tell us that the park was closed, and to yell at me for dashing about the site taking photos in too alacritous a manner.
