Have you experienced a landscape that seems composed entirely of light and shadow? A place inhabited by the wind and the clouds, by the sound of hummingbirds, by the spiced scent given up by the earth after a summer rain? Galisteo Basin is just such a place. The geography, the ancient history, and the vast path of the Milky Way stretched across the night sky can all give visitors a perspective of deep time in this place. But the vibrancy of nature in the basin sets you squarely in the present. And an amazing present it is. I can show you photos of the Basin, but photos can never convey the immensity of sky, the quality of light, the feel of the wind, the sound of coyotes crying to the stars. And since I can never help you to feel this place, I urge you to come and experience it for yourself.
