|Favorite sandy spot|
A wind picked up and began pushing dark clouds from the northwest. Rain was definitely in the offing, and, in fact, I did get sprinkled on a tad. But the storm never came while I was out there.
While I saw other outdoor enthusiasts on and about the mountain today I encountered no one. Two of the trekkers I spotted from a great distance were Renee and his dog, Rayo, who were on their way up the trail to the high foothills. I took a telephoto shot of them.
On the way home I stopped at the New Mexico Farm & Ranch Heritage Museum to ask if anyone knew who had built the wooden fence around the front of their property because I wanted to contact them. The pleasant woman at the front desk informed me that the museum's own workers had erected it, and she gave me the card of the man who headed up the team.
