So what's a body to do?
My son Ross, and I got up early Saturday morning and headed out, gleeful with the weather reports of 11-13 inches of new snow at the ski areas, but cautious of the horrible road conditions. We were thankful that the snow plow had gone by just before we pulled out onto the highway from our little side road. Driving along, we noticed several cars "ditched" along the roadway. There were others that I didn't take pictures of and this was on the highway going past our house!At the gas station, my son decided it was warm enough to take off his coat so I snapped a quick one. He always takes good photos.Sunrise, sort of.The snow made the landscape look so different that I couldn't resist taking photos as we drove along. After all, we had a three hour drive ahead of us to get to the ski area in normal road conditions and we knew it was going to take us longer than that with the bad weather and road conditions.
Sometimes, it was so foggy and snowy that we could hardly see the road.
Even fencing and old adobe houses look picturesque in this weather.Aren't those some cool shades?This was outside of Santa Fe. Notice the lone brown house in the middle?I thought this tree came out rather interesting.
The landscape was so pristine.
We drove past camel rock and I almost forgot to get a photo! Look at the snowy mountains in the background.
I thought this church built of stone was rather unusual for the area. The sky was clearing. It was going to be a beautiful, sunny day.
I like their taste in horses. Arent' they pretty?
We drove past the Rio Grande Gorge. See it in the distance?
This is what a telephoto lens can do.
Soon we were entering the mountains.
We even drove past a covered wagonbut I don't think it was going anywhere.
This is a very interesting house because it looks like it has been added on to several times. Notice the changes in the wall color. to be continued...
