Pecos National Historical Park hike

On 8/9/20 drove into Pecos and was dropped off at Pecos National Historical Park. Good choice. Beautiful juniper scrub landscape. Saw signs for rattlesnakes but encountered none. Took pictures of several plants and walked by the pueblo ruins, kivas, and old church- solemn against the blue sky. Only for about an hour.
