The Summer of Cool is Ending

It has been a wonderful summer in the Sacramento Mountains of New Mexico. The air temperature never hit above 85 degrees and most days did not even reach 80. This is very far from what we are accustomed to in Central Texas. We spend a lot of time outdoors and our cabin is not even equipped with air conditioning.

That time period included 4 long, brutal years in Arizona, 6 long, hot Texas summers under the gun, and one mosquito-laden summer in North Dakota. We look forward to many more summers above the heat. Here is a photo taken this morning of the area above our cabin. Moses
