Looks like pixel art

It’s partly because when zoomed out it really looks like there are only 4 colors in the image, like an old school CGA computer display

Took my brain a sec to figure out what this was

I still don’t know what it is


SucksToYourAzmar t1_j28x7mq wrote

Sunrise on the left making those shadows, ground covered in snow with green bushes, aerial view


Kiroto50 t1_j29drlv wrote

Wow. Thanks. It's so much clearer now!


tythousand t1_j29hkpq wrote

Thank you lol. It looked like a Petri dish


SucksToYourAzmar t1_j29il78 wrote

Same, looked like a magic eye picture. Also on closer inspection I think they're trees not bushes


Tyoccial t1_j29p8ky wrote

Am I learning that I'm colorblind, or am I misunderstanding? The ground here is blue and the bushes are brown, right?


SucksToYourAzmar t1_j29pjex wrote

Green and brown trees guessing from some leaves dying due to the cold and the snow is white in the sun and blue in the shade. At least that's how my eyes interpret it.


Tyoccial t1_j29prle wrote

Gotcha! I was so confused by the green mentioned. Do you have any idea why the ground is blue, though?


SucksToYourAzmar t1_j29q1ux wrote

Just shadows on snow I think. Like how a snowy or overcast day kind of casts a blue tint on the day.

Taos, NM

Although I recall a bit more civilization last time I was there

Drive towards Questa or the gorge and you won’t see much lol

I bet this was taken near the gorge


meatybone t1_j2a2fhc wrote

Mine as well, but probably because I thought it said tacos, nevermind.


ViciousVeggieViking t1_j27y2c5 wrote

I love Taos!

I once met a man at the top of Wheeler Peak who had a box of Taos Pizza Out Back that he was kind enough to share. I’m not sure what drives a man to carry a box of pizza 13,409 ft up, but he did it. It was possibly the best pizza I’ve ever had.

I see you downloaded the GTA goofball add-on.


UnfinishedProjects t1_j296h0b wrote

When I was a kid at a festival a long time ago in Taos, there was an ice cream stand there. I got the grasshopper ice cream and was disappointed it was only mint chocolate chip flavor. I remember wanting to eat grasshoppers in ice cream! I think I was reading too much Calvin and Hobbes.


somethngrandom2635 t1_j29iwwq wrote

Taos is the place that lived up to its legend of being a spiritual experience. I can’t explain it, it’s just a feeling of wonder or nature that I got looking at the mountain at sunset. I really need to go back.


pm_me_cute_sloths_ t1_j2a7fay wrote

Having spent 4 summers near Taos at Philmont as a staff member, there’s a 90% chance that was a Philmont staff member who thought it would be fun

Weighs a little less, but I’ve carried a pound cake up a 14er in Colorado before and ate it at the top.

That place, and Michael’s Kitchen, are staples of Philmont staff in Taos. It would not surprise me that someone would carry one up to the top of Wheeler. We love to carry food to the top of mountains and eat it lol. One of my friends took a pickle up the top of Little Costilla in the Valle Vidal nearby. We’d all rather have a meal like that at the top of a mountain than trail meals, plus it’s a fun story

Side note: I love the climb up Wheeler and sliding down the snow on the way down lol


ViciousVeggieViking t1_j2adqmq wrote

Oh yeah I’ve carried all kinds of ridiculous things up mountains (mostly beer), I just thought an entire box of pizza was hysterical and not at all expected. The Williams Lake route is super fun to snowshoe in the winter time. Last time I climbed it we brought shitty roll-up sleds from Walmart and came close to dying sledding down.

If you haven’t yet, the East Fork trail up from Red River to the top is a really fun hike but a little more brutal in the distance you cover.


pm_me_cute_sloths_ t1_j2aljvf wrote

I’ve actually only done the Williams Lake route, I unfortunately haven’t been back since 2019 though I’m dying every day to

Next time I take my fiancée we’ll try that route, it sounds really fun lol. Most everyone recommends Williams Lake because the lake is super pretty and it’s an easier hike and quicker too because of the afternoon storms during June/July lol

I’ve only slid down on my butt, I can imagine using a sled on that thing is dangerous but hella fun lol. You pick up some pretty insane speeds just on your butt

ab00neideere t1_j29p0mk wrote

When Taos Ski Valley didn't allow snowboarding, there was a coalition created called 'Free Taos' to petition the then owners to open up the slopes to boarders. Someone ordered Free Taos bumper stickers, and the person on the other end of the line heard Free Tacos. The Free Tacos stickers are a treasured memorabilia here :=].

I miss seeing my dogs running around on days like this, sage smelling sweet and the air crisp. Taos is another world sometimes.

How could you do a cliff notes of New Mexico and not mention green chile?

Also, Roswell is a tourist trap shithole lol

Shhhhhhhhhhhh. If the world ever really finds out about Hatch they might divert from Roswell.

Leave them in Roswell.

Edit — …Actually, you wanna know what I would kill for? I would pay a large sum of money to get someone to ship me two big containers of Frontier Adovada and a few containers of Dion’s Greek dressing.

Oh Lawd, I would chonk out so hard.

Good point, absolutely good point

3 well funded Gov Labs, 2 massive loosely ‘secret’ storage facilities, 1 ‘unfinished’ storage facility, and of course the 2 intensely advanced pilot training facilities.

But I don’t know anything about any of that 🫠


Blackletterdragon t1_j28stlm wrote

Taos? NM?


crash180 t1_j291uf0 wrote

Taos = City

NM = The state of New Mexico in the United States of America


Blackletterdragon t1_j2976sf wrote

Cheers. I see some of your State names are as uninventive as ours. 🇦🇺

Actually, I should have recognised it from the words of a song:

"And away I did ride,

Just as fast as I

Could from the West Texas town of El Paso

Out to the bad-lands of New Mexico."


crash180 t1_j2cdbb7 wrote

Wow! I have not heard that song before. I sung it in my head nevertheless as I was reading it.

My kids think it is funny when I do that to books I am reading to them, where they do not specify it is a song, and I break out a ballad of the words I am reading. Those words are supposed to be a song. Fun times.

Regarding the uninvintive names for States, this applies to City names as well. I cannot think of an odd one right now. However, they are out there.

When I think of the place I would wish to retire, the place that drew me spiritually (as corny as that is), the area of the nation that seemed so attainable yet forever out of my reach it has always been New Mexico. From Santa Few to Taos to Red River was a Christmastime I will always treasure. I hope to retire to this area someday.

If you've never visited Taos, do yourself a favor and rectify that situation. Swing by Santa Fe too while you're in the area.

The Rio Grande Gorge alone is worth the trip, but for me the really amazing part was Carson National Forest. I drove down from Colorado, meaning that the last thing I had seen was the Sangre De Cristos on my left and the San Juans on my right, with empty flat desert in the middle. And then… suddenly trees. It's hard to describe how uniquely and wonderfully weird it is.
