You never know where bug activity will spring up, I believe this is Bandelier National Monument in New Mexico
I love hanging out in New Mexico and of course you all know I love my bugs, so its wonderful when they just happen to be active and nearby. Carpenter ants are my nemesis and should not be dismissed as just another set of bugs. While not eating wood, they can damage it by making their home inside of it. I have run across these ants only one time so far in Phoenix and that is OK by me.
