Andy and I joined Jason, Hunter, Bill and Tom for a hike at Ghost Ranch near Abiquiu. We started the day with a hike to the top of Kitchen Mesa.
Hunter, Bill and Sarah aren't quite as excited as the dogs are to be out for a hike on this very warm December day. Where's the snow?!
The incredible colors of the Abiquiu area were the backdrop for our day of hiking.
The blue sky highlights the red rock of the area.

Bill, Cuba and Nova are looking for the refrigerator on top of Kitchen Mesa. Nova is sure it is behind that next tree.

We did a second hike to Chimney Rock (pictured here) later in the day.
Can you find Jason in this photo?

We had a great view of Chimney Rock from the top of a nearby mesa.
We enjoyed the scenery as we headed back to the car content with a great day of hiking in a beautiful area.
