Hiking the Snowy Chihuahuan Desert

Desert Snow

Wanted to get out for a little hiking action today, but I was afraid that the roads leading into the mountains would still be treacherous and snow covered. As a result, Noelle, Parker and I stayed close to home and headed back to La Cueva Trails.

We hiked a loop along a different section than we had hiked previously. For most of the loop we made first tracks in the snow. We saw some cows, some mule deer, and some birds. We also found this concrete foundation which left us wondering about the past.

By the time our hike was over quite a bit of snow had melted.

Hopefully this means we'll be able to get up into the Guadalupes tomorrow!
