I love clouds … all kinds of clouds. These clouds were so low it looked as if you could reach out and grab them but I’ve actually seen them even lower were they’re actually sitting on the ground. I think they are attempting to shroud Sandia Mountain but the mountain is doing a pretty good job of peeking through.
One of my favorite things about Albuquerque and I guess all places with mountains …. is when the clouds make shadows on the mountains. This is the Sandia Mountains and they border Albuquerque’s east side. For the past few days the clouds have been doing a spectacular job of making shadows on the mountains.

Coming in for a landing at the Rio Grande Nature Center.
I love to head up to the mountains for some R&R. This entrance to Cibola National Forest is at the base of the Sandia Peak Tramway. There are hiking trails that are accessible from here when there is no fire danger.
