Gallisteo, New Mexico
Wandering the blue highways of New Mexico, I side trip from the Turquoise Trail to Galisteo. The rain puts a damper on my photo walk, and it’s a spot I’d like to revisit sometime to photograph the pueblo ruins and shells of old houses in the tiny town.
I had not realized until my visit that there are a lot of expensive homes in the Galisteo Basin, and it has been an artist’s community for decades. Within the lattice of coincidence, Wikipedia’s list of notable Galisteo residents includes artist Susan Rothenburg, whose painting Four Color Horse is in the permanent collection of the Crystal Bridges Museum, the subject of yesterday’s post.
