Monument View

This image was captured as I hiked the volcanic West rim of the Rio Grande Gorge of New Mexico during a Winter snow storm. This area was declared a national monument by President Obama and includes 242, 555 acres. The Rio Grande del Norte National Monument, signed into existence in March 2013, is one of the nation’s most recent — and biggest — national monuments. That declaration protects the arid high-mountain Taos Plateau from any development — no fracking, no drilling, no mining, no suburbs, no wind farms, no new roads—and ensures that rain and wind will be the primary factors shaping this region for centuries to come.
