Hello campers! Winter continues to bring us opportunities for extended ski resort fun, a promise of precious water feeding our lakes and streams, along with wildlife and wildflowers as happy as can be this spring.

Anne has always dreamed of photographing the unusual rock formations of Chiricahua covered in snow, and now was the chance! Luckily the snow hadn’t stuck to the road surfaces making for a perfect scenario. Beautiful winter scenes but safe driving conditions.
