Southwestern Gifts Galore
Last week my sister and I drove from the Bay Area to Louisiana, during which we passed through the southern part of fair New Mexico.

Lured in by the promise of 'snake stuff,' we had the pleasure of experiencing this poncho-laden pocket of Americana. Here are some snapshots.
