desert snow

There’s a certain excitement during the first few storms of the season. It’s beautiful untouched at night and on early mornings. I love the way it can glow at night and shine during the day.

We hadn’t seen snow in Albuquerque for more than a month, but it finally decided to give us a little show this week. I don’t love snow and I don’t miss Utah winters, but I had to admit to myself yesterday that it sure was beautiful the way it covered the mountains and draped some cacti a short drive away from our apartment. It looked lovely on the bare trees against the sky. And though I don’t love snow as a whole, I do love moments with snow, and this was one of those moments.

I’d actually just had a pretty frustrating encounter during a morning errand before I shot these photos. But I suppose if that hadn’t happened, I wouldn’t have went on this drive. I just couldn’t resist after seeing how gorgeous it looked. I probably would have been in bed! And since snow doesn’t last long here, I would have missed such a beautiful morning. So, you know. It’s the little things in life that make it wonderful.
