|On the flank trail|
It was a strangely overcast day in the northern Chihuahuan Desert, not particularly cold, but with a noticeable amount of humidity. I believe it could rain later this afternoon. The light was interesting for photography and I managed to take 77 images, some of which appear here.
There were only a few other outdoor enthusiasts on and about the mountain, and I ran into no one. I didn't even see many denizens of the desert except for a few rabbits and one industrious Ladder-backed Woodpecker who seemed oblivious to my presence.
|The long view|
|This and the next: a little over a mile in|
|This and the next: something of a washboard sky|
|This and the next: desert sands|
|Look at the swirling sky|
|Starting some major bushwhacking|
|Tortugas and the Organs|
|Distant sun over an arroyo|
|Who's that in the yucca?|
|Why it's a Ladder-backed Woodpecker|
