Looks like it might stick this time. Up in the mountains the ground is still soft in places from snowmelt, one of the springs along the Faulty Trail is now a creek with small waterfalls and gurgles, and the birds sound more sanguine. Hiked for miles up there and met one other hiker and one equestrian. Not sure how many bears and mountain lions were watching, but I did feel my scalp prickle a few times.

Here are some flowers…

This looks like some sort of Holly…

It snowed here on Thanksgiving Day, and it was my first experience with a snow thunderstorm. The flashes and cracks close by were a reminder of the vulnerability that comes with living at high altitude. What’s “missing” in this photo are the Sandia Mountains, whited-out by a combination of snowfall and cloud-fog.

Found some small things to photograph on my hike today, new photos in the Cibola Photo Album

Here’s one of them…
