A Day of Changeable Weather

late morning, Pajarito Mountain towers above Los Alamos townsite; windy but with gorgeous clouds in a blue sky

Check out the Los Alamos Photography Club's 17th annual photography show in Mesa Public Library's Upstairs Gallery through March.  I thoroughly enjoyed all the photos - especially the cranes!

While taking in the show, I took the above photo through the Gallery's picture window, overlooking a metal roof.

That afternoon, I walked on the White Rock Canyon Rim Trail.  It was overcast and snow was beginning to fall on the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.   I got back to my car around 4 pm.  On the way home, tiny snowflakes spattered softly on the windshield.

Atalaya Search and Rescue recently held a practice rescue in White Rock Canyon to prepare for their Mountain Rescue Association recertification.  The article about it in this week's Santa Fe Reporter is definitely worth a read!
