Spirits In The Trees
There's something about Cottonwood Trees in the winter. Mostly without leaves, the Cottonwood's true character shines through. Gnarly and twisted, each of them is possessed of it's own ancient spirit and no two are alike.
A Brief History of Tome', New Mexico
Tome' is located off HWY47 south of the intersection with El Cerro Loop (formerly known to long term residents as "the 4-way stop") and is one of several small communities that run together in the area generally known as "Los Lunas".
Today, Tome is little more than a blip on the map but, once upon a time, it was the county seal of Valencia County and is the oldest Hispanic settlement in Valencia County.

Not much left in Seboyeta
Johnpaul and I drove through Seboyeta on the way to Moquino. It is near Laguna Pueblo, off I-40 west of Albuquerque. I suspect we may have missed some of the highlights of the town because all we saw were two abandoned stone houses, the remains of a tricycle and a band of friendly ranch horses.
Seboyeta, New Mexico is a census designated place in Cibola County. That means it has a name and a dot on the map because people still live there but it no longer has a post office or a town government.
In 2010, census data reported a population of 179 and Seboyeta had a post office from February 5, 1885 to January 7, 1995.
