Rain in the distance, seen from Valle Grande, part of Valles Caldera. Through the rain you can just barely see what’s left of the trees that burned in the 2011 Las Conchas fire.
I have yet to see a view of the East Fork of the Jemez that I didn’t totally love. This one is from the middle of Valle Grande, part of Valles Caldera National Preserve.
