The large amount of snow and rain (at least in Albuquerque) that we’ve had since the beginning of the year seems incredibly auspicious. I’ve been antsy and hating winter, wanting to be able to get out more easily, and at the exact same time, I’m so unbelievably grateful for all the snow.
The new year blew in with high winds, cold temperatures — and more snow than we’ve seen in the Albuquerque area for 12 years. This late afternoon scene is one of my very favorite views of the Sandias, taken from the road going up to Bear Canyon. Grateful for a wonderful, moist start to the new year!
It’s hard to believe yet another year is ending. Wishing you excellent health and great happiness in 2019.
Probably the last of the fall color for this year (sob!). I took this photo on the aptly named Cottonwood Springs Trail at Elena Gallegos Picnic Area. The light was hitting that teeny tiny tram car just right.
A lovely fall day along the Rio Grande as it runs through Albuquerque, surrounded by changing cottonwoods and with the Sandia mountains in the background.
