No escape

This late-winter snowstorm is the sort of thing we wanted to avoid when we set out upon our trek to the desert Southwest. During the night of March 10-11, a weather front that streaked all the way from southern Arizona to the northeast Atlantic states dropped about two inches of wet snow on our campsite at Ute Lake, near Logan, New Mexico. Tomorrow’s weather forecast calls for a sunny day with high temperatures in the 60s, so this wintery scene should be gone before we begin the next leg of our journey back to the North Country. Where the last blast of winter is probably waiting for us.
