Spring and Mountain Hiking Trails

Spring and Mountain Hiking Trails

Looking forward to spring and this photo is a throw back to last spring. January always seems so much longer than 31 days. This is an entrance to a mountain hiking trail in the Cibola National Forest. When it’s really dry and there is a fire danger many if not all of these trail get closed.

That plant with the white bloom of flowers on top is a Yucca which New Mexico adopted as it’s state flower in 1927.

This one is on the opposite side of Albuquerque, to the east,  in the foothills of the Sandia Mountains at Elena Gallegos Open Space.

The dedication on the bench reads:

He loved nature and this place. Rest awhile
and listen. His spirit is in the wind, birdsong
and foothills on the trail.

“…the wind is still in the trees?”
