True to New Mexico fall weather our trip up the mountain this past Saturday was absolutely beautiful. It was a little breezy on top but not a cloud one in the sky. The deep blue hue of New Mexico's fall skies contrasted very well with the deep golden aspens with their near snow white trunks, and the shadows on the mountain. Peaceful, beautiful, tranquil even with the burnt tree damage. Soon winter will overtake the mountain transforming it into a winter wonderland.
