Cold Overcast

Doña Ana Mountains
Had there been anything more than a slight breeze out there this morning I'd have frozen my biscuits off.  Nevertheless, it was quite cold around Tortugas Mountain.  Surprisingly there were quite a few other outdoor enthusiasts about, including JC, who Becca and I hiked with back to the vehicles.  Down the road in El Paso the 81st annual Sun Bowl football game will be played between Arizona State and Duke, but the weather right now looks anything bu sunny.
