Kid Ross

August 11, 2015
   I wanted to see some new country, so I took off from Albuquerque this morning and crossed the Rio Grande and motored up into the Jemez Mountains, crossing over the high pass and dropping into Los Alamos. Lots of big clouds and storms the past three days.

Big storms all the way.

   Circled back to Santa Fe. Thanks to Gary Cozzens I have a cultural pass to see all the monuments and museums in New Mexico, so I drove up to Museum Hill to see the In-din and Folk Art displays. After that, I drove down to Lamy to visit with artist Thom Ross

Thom is doing a bunch of art for a PBS show on Charlie Russell that will air this coming fall.

Kid Ross: "Gunfighter"

Took off from Santa Fe and motored back north to Georgia O'Keeffe Country. Landed at the Abiquiu Inn around nine. Going to explore these canyons today.

"I think New Mexico was the greatest experience from the outside world that I have ever had. It certainly changed me forever."
—D.H. Lawrence, 1928
