Fog Over the Rio Grande and Volcanoes

An uncharacteristic fog over the Rio Grande and volcanoes in Albuquerque appeared for a few moments last week. While the cottonwoods in the bosque still haven’t dropped last year’s leaves, some of the other trees are starting to leaf out in green. Kind of a neat mix of winter and spring all at once.
