About Me

My photo
Welcome to the online blog for traveler/writer/photographer Steven Barber. Come in. Relax. Take off your shoes and socks -- or any other article of clothing, this is the internet. Have a look around. I hope to intrigue, amuse, entertain, and maybe provoke you just a little. I love to find adventure. All I need is a change of clothes, my Nikon, an open mind and a strong cup of coffee.

From its headwaters in the Sangre de Cristo mountains northeast of Santa Fe, the Pecos River runs nearly a thousand miles due south as it crosses New Mexico and settles into Texas, finally merging with the Rio Grande.

Despite a well-earned reputation as a wild river at the northern end, the waters are serene and gentle as they approach the southern end of the state. Here they neatly bisect the city of Carlsbad, NM, providing drinking water and a welcome aquatic respite from the surrounding desert areas of New Mexico and Texas.
