Fall Colors In The Sacramento Mountains - 11-02-2013.
























My wife (Diane) and I took a drive through the Sacramento Mountains Saturday. We left Roswell and headed west up the Hondo Valley. We were somewhat disappointed in the fall foliage. Most of the cottonwood and popular trees have already dropped their leaves, likely due to an early freeze. Some of the trees have yet to turn, while others displayed a mixture of turning and staying green. I think that a combination of the September rains, and the early freeze, has caused the mismatch of colors. Still we encountered some beautiful scenes. 

We stopped at the Tangle Y Wood-N-Art Shop in Hondo where I took the photo of the cross and the sign. We then continued west through Apache Summit on U.S. Highway 70, and dropped down into Mescalero and Bent. After stopping for Lunch at Casa De Suenos in Tularosa we continued south to Alamogordo, then east through Cloudcroft and Mayhill. Naturally we had to stop at Runyan Ranches near Elk. Tom Runyan and I discussed the upcoming winter weather outlook. He expects to see their first snow before Thanksgiving and thinks that they may have a cold winter.
