Winter Just Keeps Coming

The snow from January just meted away last week and now we get another inch or so….

Back yard and some of the juncos queued up waiting for me to clear the patio and for Trisha to put out some seed.

Carlsbad Caverns

Today we visited Carlsbad Caverns. It was great to visit in the off-season; there was almost no one else there so we could enjoy the experience in quiet. And the caverns were so much more spectacular than we expected. Trisha trekked the whole 1.4 miles along the “Big Room” route. carlsbad_03495_bcarlsbad_03496

Petroglyph National Monument

Before leaving Albuquerque we made a short visit to Petroglyph National Monument, a place we had visited previously in May 2008. This time I had a better camera and good light, even though it was very windy.

Albuquerque Botanic Garden

Our first stop on the trip was the Albuquerque Botanic Garden. On a very chilly and windy day we confined our visit to the enclosed desert and tropical plant areas.

Rattlesnake Lake Chilly Morning

Trisha was off for a manicure so I decided to take a quick visit to Rattlesnake Lake to see what the morning light might present by way of photo ops. Not much, really. And it was very cold, especially without the gloves I left home.
