Friday Foto and story

My sister has been in town and we have been taking many trips around "the neighborhood" and lots of photographs. So this week there are a log of pictures to choose from for my Friday Foto. Frequent readers of my blogs will no doubt see some of the others in the weeks ahead. I chose the one below over some of flowers I really like because it is of "the neighborhood" as it were.


Storm over Eagle Nest Lake

Debbie and I found a crude road which climbed via switchbacks up to the summit of Green Mountain outside the town of Eagle Nest on the banks of the lake. Afternoon thunderstorms had chased us away from fishing on Cimarron River in the Palisades area of the state park. Reluctant to go home we threw gear in the car and set off on a bit of backroading.

After we rose above 9000 feet we noticed the storm which had been the end of fishing in the canyon had topped the mountains and moved into the Moreno Valley. It looks as if it was raining over my house in Black Lake when I took this photo. And when we finally went home to fix dinner my section of the land of enchantment had indeed been drenched with another rain.

  6. Yes, I agree, Heather. I think unfortunately we sometimes get so involved in our own little world we forget to see the world around us and the beauty that is ours.
