I haven’t gotten out much over the last two and a half years. I want to create a new tradition of taking seasonal walks with my kids, with Dom, or even alone. I’d like to kick off this new tradition the Sunday after Thanksgiving for what I’d like to call Festive Foraging. This is a nature hunt for different things like pine cones, rocks, interesting leaves, twigs, flowers and even bugs.
Festive Foraging has a nice ring to it, right?
Festive Foraging will be about collecting new memories, exploring, and spending the day immersed in the beauty of New Mexico.
The photo above is of Jemez Springs, NM. This will be the destination of our first Festive Forage. The mission will be to collect interesting dead branches, lots of pine cones and interesting rocks. I doubt there will be any leaves left on the cottonwood trees, or any other deciduous tree. It’s been getting quite cold. The elevation of Jemez Springs is 6909 feet above sea level. I would imagine that there probably will be snow up there.
Below are several photos I pinned to Pinterest, and if you’d like to see more, click here to view my “Branches” board.
