Santa Fe snow




My favorite tree, corner of Alemeda and Paseo de Peralto
 
The day before


 Santa Fe ski area

 The lonesome road home, heading south from Santa Fe, 23 degrees, at sunrise
It was a fast moving storm...came in one afternoon, snowed heavily and by morning it was gone. From the top, snowing on the flat rooftops of Santa Fe, on a "coyote" fence, then the accumulation on trees, then first light on trees covered with snow, and the dawn sun burning clouds off the Sangre de Cristos.

  1. Snow on adobe is one of the most beautiful sights I know.
