High Rolls Delight

The start of the Grandview Trail
We got a late start on the Grandview Trail this morning because of rain and sleet.  But by the time we'd reached the trail head the weather had cleared.  It was still chilly, but well worth the effort.  The scenery, as usual, was spectacular.  And Becca thoroughly enjoyed herself.

High Rolls, New Mexico is in the Sacramento Mouintains at an elevation of about 7,000 feet.  It's what is called high desert, very similar to Santa Fe.
