"May all your trails..."

"MAY ALL YOUR TRAILS BE CROOKED, WINDING, LONESOME, DANGEROUS, LEADING TO THE MOST AMAZING VIEW ... WHERE SOMETHING STRANGE AND MORE BEAUTIFUL AND MORE FULL OF WONDER THAN YOUR DEEPEST DREAMS WAITS FOR YOU."

Beautiful pictures... but I didn't think it snowed in New Mexico?

Hi mlh,
Thanks for coming to my blog!

Yes, we get snow here -- we are at 7000 feet elevation so it snows but the sun generally comes out and melts it pretty quickly. The Sangre de Cristo Mountains here in Santa Fe generally (hopefully) get lots of snow, but so far this fall the peaks are bare ... which is a disappointment for all the skiers who hoped the season up at the Ski Basin would start on Thanksgiving.

Great pics, Sharon. Apropos of nothing... it's 72 degrees as I type! So much for "winter," eh?

Two roads diverged in the wood and I, I took the one less traveled by and that has made all the difference. --robert frost

The above is one of the sayings I live by.

For good or bad - Winding roads, twists and curves - all make life far more interesting.

Gorgeous pics, btw. Just beautiful and serene.

Gee, Towanda, I didn't think you'd go into curse words on your blog. What next after Sn*w? R*in? Col*?
I'm in shock. That white stuff belongs only on mountains (makes skiers happy) and on the ground Christmas Eve. To be melted by the next morning sun.
BTW, ignore Buck's comment. Retired Air Force, you know.
I am NOT jealous.
