Time to explore

One of the great things about living in the desert is the weather. Even now, in mid-December, we're experiencing record heat, with day time temps. right around 85 degrees. Nice yes, Christmasy.... not so much.

However, anytime us desert-locals want to see 4 season weather, it's only a 2 hour drive North! I packed a pretty Christmas picnic basket yesterday and we braved the chilly air in hopes of seeing something that resembled winter. There was actually snow up there!! ** This is the same hike I did in Oct. when the leaves were changing colors. Those photo's are in this post.**















Every time we visit Sedona I wished we lived a little closer to the mountains!! :)

Hi! We're also dealing with above average temps here in Albuquerque. It's nice to not have to bundle up like crazy when cruising around town but I'm secretly wishing for at least a few inches of snow this Christmas.
Merry Christmas to you and your family! (btw, your blog is lovely) Take care.

Tara, what a beautiful place. I never knew there would be snow so close in the dessert. Now get off that cliff thingy....you're scaring me. :)
