Echo Amphitheater

Yesterday we visited Echo Amphitheater. “a natural amphitheater located in Rio Arriba County in northern New Mexico, about 17 miles west of Abiquiu”.

The drive there was absolutely beautiful. We didn’t see any Big Horn Sheep, or Deer, no, this trip brought us up close with roadside COWS! There they were, just grazing along side of the highway. That’s when I knew we were in for an interesting, and fun-filled day.

I just love the variations of colors in the mountains in this part of New Mexico,

and the way the wind is ever-changing the rock formations.

When we finally reached the entrance to Echo Amphitheater, the colors in the stone walls were even more vivid and stunning.

As I stood there gazing at all the beautiful colors and wind-blown formations, I almost felt like the stone walls were gazing back at me, and the more I looked, the more I began to see faces in the stone walls. Eyes, noses,

and even an open mouth with just one tooth showing.

I continued to study the stone walls, and started seeing more subtle images, like this image towards the bottom of the stone wall, that to me, looks like two people standing side by side with head covers or hoods.

The most amazing image I saw was in the amphitheater itself. The reddish color that appears to be running down the stone wall, looks to me, like a veiled woman. You might see her too if you follow the deep line in the stone wall (to the left of the reddish color in the middle of the picture) up to where the line meets the reddish color, and perhaps you will see her shoulder, then her neck, then just above that, I see her chin, nose, and the top of her head all of which is covered in a veil, and she is looking to the left as well. Can you see her?

I could have stayed there for hours just studying the stone walls.

There is a sitting area just below the amphitheater where you can just pause, relax, and take it all in. And, if you shout at the stone amphitheater, it will send your echo back to you…

This place is magical, and just draws you in, and makes you want to never leave,

but leave we must, but not without tucking the memories of this special place into my heart to carry with me. Good-bye Echo Amphitheater. Thanks for letting me see your spirit within your stone walls.

Big thank-you to my frissy, Robin, for telling us about this magical place. We most likely would not have ever known about it if not for your suggestion that we go there. It really isn’t very well advertised.

Stay Tuned!
