Taos, a first hike of the season into the Carson National Forest above town. Weather threatening in the distance. Will it return again this evening? Temps holding up so far, altho we have suited up with hats, gloves and fleece, along with our hiking boots.
Views of the city below takes in the distant plains as well. Dark thunder clouds touching down in the not too distant mountains, maybe four to five peaks to the north. Feels great to be stretching feet after a week of heavy driving interspersed with beach and city walks. Pine scents fill the air. White capped peaks remind that spring is still fresh.
