We are Home…. for a few days


While we spent most of the winter in El Paso we were able to take a few trips. One which we will be a long time forgetting was one up to Silver City, NM. The highway from there over to I-25 is one we will remember. Beautiful vistas and one of the crookedest roads we have been on in a long time. The Road to Hana may be slighlty crookeder but it is not nearly as long.  LOL

Below is a short video show just one of the views which made the trip worthwhile. It is from the top of the pass on the highway.

 

After recovering from this drive we did stop by our favorite New Mexico destination, Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge near San Antonio, NM. While most of the Sandhill Cranes and Snow Geese had left in mid February a few still ingered and we were able to get a few videos.

The video below is of the Snow Geese gathering at the pond near the refuge in the morning. They may be landing there to wake up the sleeping Sandhill Cranes.

The video below is on the sleeping Sandhill Cranes as the Snow Geese are gathering.

The video below is of a portion of the Sandhill Cranes at the refuge. It may be they are on dry land to get something to eat.
