Santa Clara Pueblo has received $6,513,000 in stimulus funds to promote healthy forests and reduce hazardous fuels inside the Valles Caldera in Northern New Mexico. This was a long travel day for me, but man was it beautiful.

In 2010, along with fellow photographers Michael J. Gallegos, Mark Holm and Jake Schoellkopf, I was commissioned by the New Mexico Office of Recovery and Reinvestment to document how some of the stimulus dollars were spent around New Mexico. This is the fifth post is a series of six on the work I did for NMORR.
