A Drive

This and the next:  Desert Cottontail eating Prickly Pear at our place
Neither Dr. K nor I felt up for the physical demands of our normal Sunday morning hike so we took a long drive through a section of Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument instead.  I stopped periodically to take a photo or two on a crisply cold, though sunny, day.

It was a nice outing, and we got to see some beautiful scenery in the process.

Cottontail back for more Prickly Pear
