The Rain Came

Lady in the mountain, Alamogordo, New Mexico. A rainy day in July.

Until today, it had been hot, hot, hot in Alamogordo. And then the rains came. First to the mountains and then the Tularosa Basin.

The rain brought cool air.

I was up in Cloudcroft in the morning. On my way back to Alamogordo in the afternoon, it was so good to be in the rain. The air was sharp with the scent of pine.

The above video is Highway 82 east and west of the tunnel in Lincoln National Forest. You can see how the White Sands gleam in the distance about :57. It's days in New Mexico like this when I am amazed: I live here.

Driving into Alamogordo, the rain continued.
