I’m on this new kick of visiting the Parks in the late afternoon/early evening, so the light for photos is better. When I visited Fort Union National Monument (New Mexico) a few days ago, it was exactly the right time for someone to play “Taps” on the trumpet, which only added to the moodiness of the place.
Fort Union was a stronghold against Confederate forces trying to make their way west during the Civil War.
Next up: Pecos National Monument.
P.S. Good friend and blog reader Lee made a great suggestion – to make sure and mention which state these parks are in. I assume you know exactly where I’m at, but why would you? So for the record, Capulin Volcano is in New Mexico, like Fort Union. Thanks, Lee!
