Unfortunately, although the sky had mostly cleared after afternoon rains, clouds lingered on the horizon beyond the Sangre Mountains, which obscured the rising moon. Still, Plaza Blanca is such a beautiful place that we enjoyed ourselves by photgraphing the cliffs in the light of the setting sun.

Officially known as the Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument, its main attraction is a winding, 0.6-mile-long canyon with numerous hoodoos.Sometimes the canyon is only a few feet wide with sheer walls; sometimes it is quite broad with trees and bushes. Members of the Los Alamos Photo Club made an outing to Tent Rocks in November 2014 and came home with many wonderful photos.

Las Conchas Fire June 2011

The Las Conchas fire started around 1:00 PM on June 26, 2011 near a Forest Service campground in the Jemez Mountains, apparently caused by a tree that fell onto a power line. This ferocious fire, driven by high winds and bone-dry foliage, traveled 14 miles and burned 40,000 acres in its first day. Despite the efforts of over 2000 firefighters and a squadron of helicopters, it ultimately consumed more than 150,000 acres. It took over five weeks to fully contain the fire. These photos show how it begin rather innocently and quickly turned into a monster wildfire. Residents of Los Alamos were told to leave on June 27 and were allowed back on July 3.

200911 - Backyard Coyotes

This morning we heard a ruckus in our yard. It turned out that three coyotes were brawling right outside our bedroom window. It was soon clear they were fighting over something buried in the snow. The largest coyote quickly took charge; while the other two skulked around at a distance, the alpha male proceeded to dig in the snow to uncover a haunch of a deer. He gnawed on it for several minutes before taking it behind the lilac bushes in the back of our yard. These pictures were taken through a double-paned window, so they are a bit soft.
