Cerro Pedernal, is this weeks featured image on Fine Art America in the “New Mexico Land of Enchantment” and “All Natural Beauty in this World” groups.
Cerro Pedernal is located in the northern Jemez Mountains due west of my home in Ojo Caliente and the best part is I view it everyday from my veranda. The name Pedernal means flint in Spanish and this butte in northern New Mexico is a great source for the same. Native Americans of the area used this flint for arrowheads, knives, scrapers and spear points. Artist Georgia OKeefe lived in nearby Abiquiu and created stunning paintings of this well-known butte.
