Kasha-Katuwe is located on the Pajarito Plateau between 5700 and 6400 feet (1737–1951 m) above sea level. The area owes its remarkable geology to layers of volcanic rock and ash deposited by pyroclastic flow from eruptions within the volcanic field of the Jemez Mountains that occurred 6 to 7 million years ago.

28 and feelin’ great. Thankful to be alive and healthy.
Can someone please teach me how to make sopapillas? I got the eating part down but my New Mexican cooking skills are...umm...questionable 😂
Sopapillas are fried puff pastries served in most traditional New Mexican restaurants. They are sometimes used to wipe a plate of delicious New Mexican entrees clean by turning a sweet treat into something a little more savory. But let’s be honest, I just drown mine in honey and call it a day. 😉🍯 •
Sopapillas are normally light and fluffy, like dreamy clouds on your tongue. Well, the good ones (i.e. the ones you find all over New Mexico but particularly Ranchos De Taos and Albuquerque - *hint* *hint*) are. Side note: Adding a sprinkle of “homemade by Anshula” apparently means running a basket of sopapillas over with a bulldozer...
P.S. Have you ever tried making a recipe from a cookbook? I really liked the ones from Whiskey In A Teacup by @reesewitherspoon (the adopted Southerner in me approves) and I really want to try the ones in With Fire On The High by @acevedowrites. 😊
Paying close attention to the little things lately. The first sip of coffee in the morning. Sunshine warming my skin. The thrill of a challenging hike. The sound of rain and thunder. The bittersweet feeling of finishing a riveting book. Getting goosebumps while listening to my favorite songs. These are the things worth living for.
