Wall of Green - FR181

Incredibly green scene, from FR181/American Spring Road. This belies how dry it is. Wind stirred up dust devils as I walked. The breezes cooled me but net effect is they further dry out everything. Monsoon is shorting us and all we're getting is hot, hot, hot.

Pajarito Mountain ridgeline, background.

Remnant grove that did not burn in either Cerro Grande or Las Conchas wildfires. Always seems to invite me in.

Cliffs above Upper Water Canyon, looking eastward.

Another forest spared by both Cerro Grande and Las Conchas wildfires.
