Kachina Peak from Taos Valley Overlook

Kachina Peak from Taos Valley Overlook on 3-19-13

How could I? You can hardly force your way outside, because it’s spring. That means a steady 25 mph wind at noon with gusts to 45. It’s also 34 °F and “feels like 23.” And 10 °F tonight! No kidding. I just looked outside at the woodpile and saw that my tarp was setting sail for Texas, so I went outside to weight it down and got a big mouthful of sand.

As for harbingers of spring, we have robins here year-round, so they won’t do, but it turns out that the turkey vulture will. I’ve been advised to look for them as they migrate north from Mexico, where they feast on headless tourists. Sometimes they get tangled in the fanny packs and die. Not many people know this, but it’s another reason not to wear one.
