On Sunday we celebrated my Dad's Birthday with lunch in Socorro and a drive through the Bosque del Apache.
The Bosque del Apache is a wildlife refugee about an hour and a half south of Albuquerque. According to the website, during the Fall and Winter seasons, there are thousands of birds including Sandhill Cranes, Arctic Geese and a variety of ducks. We went a little early in the season, but we were still able to see a lot of wildlife surrounded by beautiful fall colors.

Addy and the Birthday Boy!
It's funny how you can live somewhere you're whole life and never even know that something like this exists. It's definitely a New Mexican treasure.
Linking up with the Paper Mama and Wordlessish Wednesday.
