Sandia Mountains and Winter Clouds

After a winter storm dropped a few inches of snow on the Sandia foothills, I stopped along Forest Service Road 333 to photograph this panorama of the light from the setting sun on the clearing storm clouds and Sandia Mountains.

Approaching Winter Storm in New Mexico

Every winter, I try to make time to travel back to New Mexico to visit family around the holidays. I enjoy hiking up into the Sandia Wilderness area east of town to photograph winter storm clouds (and possibly snow) on the mountains. Around Christmas day (2018), I took a few panoramas of the approaching winter storm clouds off to the west over the city. More panoramas of the winter storm coming in the next few weeks.

Paradise Loop Trail on Mt Rainier

My favorite part of the Paradise Loop trail was the less busy return (counter clockwise)- wonderful views of the Mountain, mossy streams, and rolling hillsides.
