A slight warming trend is expected over the next few days, which will allow us to do some mid-mountain treks; i.e. mid-elevation hikes around the 7,000-foot level. We'll stay away from Cloudcroft in all likelihood, unless we decide to drive up for supplies. Temperatures undoubtedly will be much colder up there.
|Southwest across the desert|
|High-elevation cactus garden|
|About the size of a tennis ball, but spinier|
|This and the next: west side of Tortugas Mountain|
|Further west of the mountain|
|Even further west of Tortugas|
|This and the next: heading back to the trailhead|
|Up in the Sacramento Mountains now|
|Sky over the pumphouse|
|This and the rest: early afternoon sky over the Sacramentos|
I like that last photo of the sky up here in the High Country.
