There’s just no stopping those cloud shadows. The other day at Taos Valley Overlook, I watched them march across the valley and plunge 800 feet into the Rio Grande Gorge. You’d think they were goners, but no. After a minute or two, they’d scramble up the other side and keep on moving. Hell, if I were a shadow, I’d still be down there, writing about how stupid it is I haven’t climbed out yet.
