First Day of Autumn

I can’t imagine a better way to celebrate the first day of autumn than to hike up one of the many trails in the Sandia Mountains. It will be a couple of weeks before we see the golden colors of the aspen and cottonwood trees. But the timing today was perfect for enjoying the beautiful displays of the feathery pink seed heads on the Apache plume shrubs along the trail.

Goal of this hike was a trail intersection in the saddle up ahead.
View south to village of Tijeras.
Turnaround point. Several more miles of climbing to reach the Crest. Another day.
