With the rains came some fall flowers.
This cactus is small.
This is what we looked at from our camping site. You can see
up on the mountain that some of the Aspen trees are starting to turn yellow.
These are the Chalk Cliffs. This is what Wikipedia says about Chalk Creek:
"The creek is named after the magnificent white kaolinite cliffs that stand at the entrance to the Chalk Creek valley, and are a result of hot spring deposits. These white cliffs are visible for miles in all directions, and stand in stark contrast to the otherwise wooded surrounding mountains. Stands of aspen trees and evergreens of various species surround the river for its entire length".
These next two pictures are what Bette and I came home to
yesterday afternoon after shopping.
And this morning there was a dusting of snow
on the mountains above us.
Time to head south, back to New Mexico.
A bit warmer down here.
From tonight's campsite, I'm looking at Pedernal,
the mountain where Georgia O'Keeffe's ashes are scattered.
