Time of Year I Like to Haunt Pajarito Mountain

Yesterday, had an afternoon appointment but managed to get up Zero Road East to the backside of Pajarito Mountain and home in time to eat lunch. It was cooler and felt like early fall even though it's still the tail end of summer. I like to see the mountain both when it's "opening up" in the spring and when it's "closing down" the end of summer/beginning of fall. The mountain doesn't know it and doesn't care but that mountain and I have a history together!

Going downhill, rounding the final corner on Zero Road East, overlooking the Townsite. The clouds produced nothing but were scenic.

End of walk, back at the parking lot, an attempt at "artistry"! The clouds and blue sky looked pretty through the ski area's gate.
