Piece from the Pathways & Precipices ~ An Artist’s Return to Awe and Wonder Series inspired by experiences and transformations from Bandelier National Monument Artist Residency for month of November 2022.

My base camp buddy joined me for this very special hike at the Tsankawi site which is also part of Bandelier National Monument. I was a tad nervous since there are steep ladders involved to reach the mesa top and enjoy the 360 degrees of amazing views. By this time, I had made it up the entire Frey Trail and was much more confident. One of the most distinctive features at Tsankawi are the narrow and often deep trails worn into the volcanic tuff from ancient foot traffic, some where up to my hips! This hike was amazing with pueblo ruins, numerous petroglyphs, accessible cavates, and incredible view. At this stage I had conquered most of my precipice fears and the sheer edges and ladders were no big deal! The high key brightness of the rock and the undulating shapes of the trail contrasted with the stark shapes of the boulders and brush, irresistible subject matter!
