Las Placitas, New Mexico

My sister-in-law sent me 7 gorgeous samples from Strip Mine Trail, Cibola National Forest, Placitas, NM. These colors are a delicious combination. A diamond ring would not have made me more happy! Some photos found on Panoramio. I can see the different colors of sand displayed in these photos on the blog Seattle to New Mexico (and on to Texas)
