Picture This! -- Our Next Assignment

Secret Beauty
Our next Picture This! assignment is Secret Beauty: Small Parks And Out-Of-The Way Places Only The Locals Might Know. The idea is to share great photo locales that you have discovered on your journeys, or close to home that might ordinarily be passed by. It's those places that rate only a small sign pointing "east" on the roadside, or a pocket park where there's much more than first meets the eye. When you send in a photo give us a brief idea about where the site is and use your image to share its beauty.

This photo was made in Orilla Verde, just south of Taos, New Mexico, where you can hike along the rim and down into the rift of the Rio Grande Valley.
