The first snowy Sandia Mountiains of the year. So pretty!! It even snowed a bit down in the valley but what stuck only lasted a few hours.
This piece, Positive Energy of New Mexico, was added 2007 and is part The Albuquerque Public Arts Collection. The artist is Michael Metcalfe and it is located at Louisiana Blvd and I-40.
I went out to run a few errands today and the clouds blanketing the mountains were beautiful. Stormy and beautiful. By the time I got home the mountains were completely enveloped in the clouds. You couldn’t see the mountains at all.

It was a spectacular storm that was brewing here. It rained, hailed and the wind blew like it had somewhere to go in a big fat hurry.
A storm cloud brewing over the mountains. It been amazingly wet and stormy here in Albuquerque this summer.
I have driven by the San Carols Cemetery countless times and but never stopped. It appears to be pretty old but there are quite a few new headstones there are as well. I saw headstones there as recent as 2009. I didn’t go very far in so there my be newer than that. The oldest I saw was from 1923.
There is only one tiny road through the cemetery and I didn’t feel comfortable trying to drive in there.
