Cold, Cold Rain

Potrillo Mountains west of Las Cruces
Becca and I didn't get soaked this morning, but we did get wet in a very cold rain.  What else can you expect on a winter's day.  (Almost slipped into a refrain of "California Dreamin'" there.)  The sun did break through the clouds a few times, but it's been raining again this afternoon.  We had a good hike, nonetheless, only running into one other hiker--the elderly engineer and his elderly Lab.

The first image would be otherworldly if it weren't for the utility poles. Good job.

You're more intrepid than I; if the weather threatened like it appears to be doing in your images, I'd have stayed indoors.

I would stay indoors, too.
