    When I lived in Santa Fe more than thirty years ago we used to visit Bandelier several times a year. I only climbed up to the Alcove on one occasion however.

    One time I was picnicking there with my mom and first husband, and a deer wandered up to us -- within a few yards. It stood there regarding us for a few seconds, then, unconcernedly, wandered off again.

      tend to do that all the time. They know no one can harm them and it's instinctual for them to be in people-friendly places. Maybe they even love the ambience of a setting. Living in Santa Fe 30 years ago. . .that must have been a slice of heaven; a time when New Mexico was indeed the Land of Enchantment. Thanks for posting your comment, congenitalefty.

      Treat the world (yourself, and others) as part of a living organism. Everyone and everything will benefit.
