It won’t be long now

In town it feels like fall + summer = fummer. But here at 12,000 feet the ski hill employees are getting ready for a new season. Trickles of water flow under thin patches of ice. Winds chap your face to a bright red. And leafs on the aspens transition from yellows to brown. Riding the lift for a better view $12.

Where did that roadrunner go?

On an abandoned road outside Santa Fe New Mexico I surprised this coyote looking for a meal. At my home just up the road it’s common to see a roadrunner around the structure looking for small lizards and bugs. Overall a good example of the food chain here in the high desert.
