“Never measure the height of a mountain until you have reached the top. Then you will see how low it was.” — Dag Hammarskjold
Still much cloud cover here in the high desert and transition zones that make up this part of New Mexico – raging in elevation during yesterday’s travels from 5500 feet (1676 meters) to 8850 feet (2697 meters) as we drove east to Sana Fe, and then up the High Road To Taos, through Chimayo, Las Truchas, and into Taos, and then back south (& up) toward Los Alamos. But the weather held – no more than a few raindrops while we were driving. And these are a few of the resulting photos.
