Villanueva State Park offers stunning views in a (usually) tranquil setting. Our recent blog post contains an overview of the park as well as a brief recounting of the Pecos Pueblo and Spanish conquistador encounters in the Pecos Valley region.

Handed the camera to a young friend with a steady hand to take this photo. Posted a year ago. Spotted Sandpiper on a rock in the Pecos River, Cowles, New Mexico I had to contact a New Mexico ornithologist to get the name of this bird. Evidently it can live up high in a river, males look after chicks and they like dense vegetation to hide their chicks (the vegetation is dense along the river). Here's a bit about the bird from The Cornell Lab of Ornithology: "Spotted Sandpipers are the most widespread sandpiper in North America, and they are common near most kinds of freshwater, including rivers and streams, as well as near the sea coast. Their range includes water bodies in otherwise arid parts of the continent, and it extends into the mountains, where they may occur upwards of 14,000 feet above sea level. Breeding territories generally need to have a shoreline, a semiopen area where the nest will be, and patches of dense vegetation for sheltering the chicks. Spotted Sandpipers spend the winter along the coasts of North America or on beaches, mangroves, rainforest, and cloud forest up to 6,000 feet elevation in Central and South America." . #CowlesNewMexico #PecosRiver #SpottedSandpiper #DenseVegetationNearby #Summer #NewMexico #LandOfEnchantment
We stopped to visit the hatchery by Monastery Lake and what a cool little place! They have a little self guided tour and it was awesome. I definitely recommend taking your kids there sometime. #fishingfamily #newmexicotrue #pecosriver #monastarylake #santafenationalforest #nature #wanderlust
Caught this little guy on the road after work and hauled him to a wide spot in the Pecos should be a better spot to do turtle things #snapper #pecosriver #newmexico
Exploring again.....#pecosriver #nofilter #beautifulday
Just a preview Just a couple of goons who forgot about the time "No you didn't" 😸😏 #riverrun2018 #pecosriver
How can you be a little more environmentally conscious when fly fishing?! Go barbless! Barbless hooks are easier to extract from your daily catch, which ensures that your 🐟🐠 are a little happier if released back into the wild. In addition, always know your bag limits. These are set to ensure healthy ecosystems and biodiversity. • • • #pecosriver #flyfishing #fishing #cutthroattrout #trout #biodiversity #environmentalscience #environmentalist #nature #naturephotography #respectnature #ecology #ecofriendly #ecosystems #newmexico #hikenewmexico
awesome day on the Pecos River today! 9 browns 3 rainbows 🤘🏽💪🏽🎣
Travels through the center of New Mexico starting in Las Cruces, through Alamo, Corona, Duran, VillaNueva, Ribera, and ending in Las Vegas. Traveled on unfamiliar roads to new places. Saw a sheep crossing, which is a first for sure. #whyilovethisjob #nmagriculture #pecosriver #nmexplorer #nmtravels #nmnomad #nmsheep #newmexicotrue #forgottentowns #ghosttowns #familyorigins #storrielake #plazahotelvegas
⛰How beautiful is #seminolecanyon and the #pecosriver running thru it 😍🙌🏻 . #traveltexas . And the good news is I made it to my halfway point , the bad news is my car is now being serviced because a sensor was cut by rubbing on the inside of the tire 🙄 it figures this would happen to me...it never fails!
Del Rio, Texas #delriotexas #westtexas - Pecos High Bridge on the Pecos River at confluence with the Rio Grande. - #pecoshighbridge #pecosriver #riogrande
Finally saw the confluence of Independence Creek and the Pecos River. I’m a quarter of a mile up the creek (without a paddle) in this shot. I visited Chandler Ranch and the Independence Creek Nature Preserve. Story coming! #fitcity #fitcityadventures #independencecreek #pecosriver #texas #westtexas #chandlerranch #roadtrip
West Texas day trip & a beautiful 82 degrees! #langtrytexas #pecosriver #riogranderiver
I needed a much needed day away from Menu design and editing today, so we headed out east and visited a part of the state I had never been to. I would describe it as a bit of an Oasis since you go from the usual flats of Eastern New Mexico and drop down into a canyon of a beautiful green landscape and the Pecos River. Villanueva New Mexico is small but inviting as we got several waves from the locals as we made our way up to the Villanueva State Park. Like everywhere else in New Mexico, the river was a bit dry but the recent rains gave us some water to hike next to and take some shots of the wild butterflies in the area. I took this macro shot right of the river bank. #macro #macrophotography #davidmontesphotography #insects #insectphotography #butterfly #butterflies #white #green #nikon #d800e #newmexico #nmlife #nmoutdoors #nmtrue #newmexicotrue #onlyinnm #wildlife #pecosriver #river #grass #photooftheday #closeup #flowers #grass

Well I did it! A solo trip down the river on my paddle board. I was so very scared, excited, nervous and did I mention scared? I overcame the fear and used it to fuel my fire to get it done! ✅ I only floated when I was dropping my location so if search and rescue needed to find me 😂 Other than that I paddle the whole way! But really I might write about the experience. It was magical and exhilarating! #standuppaddle #pecosriver #ididit #solo #paddleboarding
Pecos river goodness.
First Trip out on the Kayaks late yesterday evening with my son @gavinaguirre_1018 and man I’m in love! So peaceful and Beautiful out on the river. #kayaking #kayakingadventures #kayakfishing #pecosriver #westtexas #thisisthelife #relax

Tó Neinilii (sometimes misspelled as Tonenili) is the rain god of the Navajo people of Arizona and New Mexico. A deity given to having fun and playing tricks, Tó Neinilii carries a water pot. In the tribal dances he is represented by a masked man who enacts the part of a clown. In the myths, too, he is the fool who dances about in order to show that he is pleased with what is happening. Tó Neinilii was said to often argue with the Navajo god of gambling, Nohoilpe. In times of drought or misfortune due to the weather, it was often said that Tó Neinilii had lost a bet with Nohoilpe. Tó Neinilii was very mischievous and liked nothing better than a good downpour at the wrong moment. Fortunately his tricks never harm anyone. It was Tó Neinilii that saved the first Navajo from the water monster Tééhoołtsódii.

Nothing better than a Carlsbad 4th of July on the Pecos River with family and friends!
Step 1: find rocks and water Step 2: send it. #newmexico #pecosriver #nofilter #backflip #lowflip #flipnspin
Pics from Sunday at the river in Carlsbad NM. It was a last minute trip and I wish I could do it more often. My next trip I'm just gonna get in the car and go wherever the road leads. #NewMexico #Carlsbad #PecosRiver #bbq #Garcia #Bernard #family #goodtimes #fambam 😎🌞

Being in SD so long got me homesick for Texas🇨🇱. This was taken from an abandoned railroad bridge. East and West sides of the river. #Texas #WestTexas #texasforever #delawareriver #pecosriver #outdoors #summer #shooting #fourthofJuly #fishing #godscountry #orla #statelineroad
I haven’t posted very many pictures from my trip to Texas a few months ago, so here’s one of my favorites! @morganfiorello and I went exploring @seminolecanyonstatepark and found this awesome spot when leaving the park! A storm was rolling through and the wind was blowing like crazy and I think the temperature dropped 20 degrees. But we had to stop to get a shot of this gorgeous view! . #texas #seminolecanyonstatepark #amistadnationalrecreationarea #gorgeousview #pecosriver #exploretexas #catus #cacti #pricklypearcactus #neverstopexploring #iphonephotography #thisbeautifulwanderland #wanderlust #adventure #bridges #fog #texasthebeautiful #getoutandseetheworld #somuchtosee #livelifetothefullest #texasroadtrip #delriotx
This is the view from an overlook on the Pecos River, where we camped the night before last. The wind was strong and the ground rocky; we couldn't get the tent to stay up. Instead we slept under a nearby pavilion (not the stars, sorry.) #cowboycamping #pecosriver #texas #roadtrip #nofilter
New Mexico skies hold my whole heart 💛✨
My dreams are actually filled with trailer packing. We are living the dream at @campeaglewilderness 📸: @taenjohnson , she’s got the goods #loademupshipemout #pecosriver

Not everything in the desert is dry, it seems. There's a tiny slice of paradise out among the rocks. #route66 #ranchero #dirtywindshield #newmexico #pecosriver
I can’t camp or fish yet, so painting the place I’d like to be is the next best thing. Pecos River, NM 20 x 16, oil on canvas Original: $350 Prints: $40 • • • #artistsoninstagram #oilpainting #pecosriver #newmexico #paintingoftheday #paintanyway #realism #surrealism #mountains #forest #rocks
