Monochrome Mountains

Monochrome Mountains

This is the Sandia Mountains from the north. We went blazing new trails and found this great dirt path to the top of the mountain. It was rough road but a lot of fun. I saw the tiniest hummingbirds on this path and the most beautiful butterflies. Some were black and white with blue spots, one was like a really, really bright orange. I took a few photos but they move so fast it was hard to catch them.
