We try to get out at least once a week to enjoy a day hike somewhere in the area. It’s so reviving to the soul, especially in these winter days with short daylight hours and overcast skies. Yesterday we looked at our busy schedule, realized that we hadn’t yet fit in a hike this week and decided that today we would hike, even with a less than promising weather forecast. Well, those plans changed this morning when I looked out the kitchen window at the wintery landscape across the road. This storm that has settled in isn’t going anywhere soon so we won’t get in our hike this week.
I know you are all disappointed that you won’t get to see another series of my hiking excursion photos. If you want to look at some photos, I recommend checking out this site.
A local Albuquerque couple had more luck at the Apache del Bosque Wildlife Refuge in Socorro than we did on our trip there last week. The photos that they shared are what we would have seen if we were in the right place at the right time. Better luck next time, both for a future visit to the refuge and for a day hike around Albuquerque.
