We arrived at Bosque Del Apache NWR two days early and the majority of the birds had not been driven south by the colder weather. We were successful in getting a few images, shared below. We spent one night there, temperatures were down to about 10 F at night. On our very early morning drive around the loops any place close to the Rio Grande river the fog was really thick and had frozen on all the trees and brush. Most of the ponds were frozen over.
Wish we could have stayed longer, maybe next year.
Later in the morning and a bit further from the river the fog cleared allowing us to get this image. One of the loop roads with the snow covered mountains in the background. They had done a good job of getting the snow off the loop roads and the were not dusty.
I hope you enjoyed this visit to the “woods of the Apache”.
