The snow from January just melted 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.
Our flight home provided some stunning views of the rugged, snowy Western landcapes of northern New Mexico and Utah.
We made good time on today’s driving, arriving in the Las Cruces area with time to stop by the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument.
On Sunday morning we had an early breakfast with Lisa and Zyg, then headed west from Lajitas through Big Bend Ranch State Park, taking in some final glorious views of the Rio Grande River.
As we sat down for dinner to wrap up our Big Bend adventure, we were treated to a really beautiful sunset.
Today we drove Route 12 south east toward Rio Grande Village. It was another perfect day: calm and clear with very few visitors. Along the way we were treated to this lovely vista of Mexico’s Maderas del Carmen mountains on the east side of the Rio Grande river.
