Spring Break 2016 officially ended after an epic desert adventure. We noticed the importance of water and organic material to decomposition; how long trash and footprints hang around when it doesn't rain or snow. But oh how it blows!!
A blizzard hit home while we were gone and we felt its power as we plowed through 70 mph gusts down South. On the way home we saw pure white snow caps peaking out over the horizon. As we drove through Rio Grande Del Norte National Monument, moisture from the snow rose into low, pinkish hazy clouds. This is Ute Mountain with a giant cloud shadowing the plain in the foreground.
The Sangres behind us as we summited Poncha Pass.
And the Collegiate Peaks in our future.
Adios Nuevo Mexico!
