Weekly Photo Challenge: Juxtaposition


I left Las Vegas in the dead of night. My wonderful husband T told me to at least make a little vacation out of it, so I did. I spent the next four days driving home road trip style. Taking 3- and 4-digit roads wherever possible.

On one of those roads, just outside Gallup, New Mexico, I saw this sign. I think it’s a good one for the photo challenge.

cross and native american sign

More on my little road trip later.

  1. This is kind of random but isn’t the area pictured in your banner in New Mexico, south of Highway 60? It looks a lot like Alegres Mountain.

      Well, yes, it’s in New Mexico, just south of Gallup. But Gallup is on Highway 40, and I think this was on rte 610. It’s not actually a mountain, it just looks that way because I was standing kind of low. That outline that looks like a mountain is just some elevated dirt. Sorry to disappoint you!

      • I am sorry. I meant the banner across the top of your blog, not the one in your post. To clarify, not the image with the sign but the one directly below your title and menu bar. It looks like the mountains to the south of the area around Pit Town.

        Ah, I see? Didi you mean Pie Town? Because then you’re spot on!

      • That is what I meant. I thought that big, flat topped peak in the distance looked like Alegres Peak. I really, really miss New Mexico!

        So where do you live now and why did you leave?

      • I live in Mount Shasta in far northern California (hence the website). I love it here but I find myself constantly yearning to go back to New Mexico. I have never lived there but I made many, many trips out there during my four years of gradschool in Texas.

        Must check out your website, then. Sorry, I get so many spam followers lately. Yes, we’ve been to New Mexico a lot over the years, and it never ceases to amaze me how diverse the landscape is. It never gets old.

I would love to know what you think, even about old posts.
