16. Did that yesterday

This is the time of year that weather in the high desert can be perfection, and yesterday was it. The temperature topped out in the high 60s, birds were chirping, a very light breeze was blowing. We can get measurable snow through the first couple of weeks of May, but April here is generally one of the best months for people who like to get out and hike and fill their lungs with this thin, dry stuff we call air. April and October were my favorite months to do the outdoorsy tourist thing when I first moved out here.

I will always miss Boston, but this time of year I love New Mexico.

Good advice! Easterncedar Apr 11 #1
It is not good advice. I was hiking on Sunday. I stepped in fox poop. 3Hotdogs Apr 11 #8
