a classic New Mexican sunset
Shortly before tonight's sunset. Doesn't it look serene? In reality, the wind was howling and yours truly was freezing. (Mt. Taylor is in the background.)

Early Spring

looking out over Albuquerque and environs from high on La Luz trail
We're having an unusually early and warm spring in Albuquerque. I checked my photos from last year, and these blossoms first appeared on the 22nd; this year it was the 4th. And some of the trees are already sprouting green fuzz. My predictions: it will almost certainly snow in the next week (for maximum interference with the flowering trees); and more century plants than usual will bloom this year (they seem to like a hot, dry spring).
