Dessert Rain, Mountain Snow

As I head out on a long a drive from Phoenix to the Bosque del Apache Wildlife Refuge in central New Mexico I’m greeted by winter driving conditions at the higher elevations. A cold front had swept across the Southwest the previous day leaving snow on the mountains and a lot of unploughed roads. The snow-covered mountains outside of Phoenix were beautiful, my picture taking not doing them justice.
