I spent a week in the mountains of New Mexico and had a great time! The weather was very nice. It would start out in the upper 60’s in the morning and by mid-afternoon be in the mid-90’s. One of the great things about the weather out there though is that the humidity is only in the 15% range. You could usually count on a rain storm in the evening that would cool everything down but some of the electrical storms were very scary (and too close for comfort).
I got to use some of my new camera equipment as well. My new flexible mini-tripod proved very useful. Not only was it great for getting a shot from the rocky terrain, I was able to get some good shots by wrapping it around branches when there weren’t any good spots on the ground. I also tried out my new 55mm/1.8 lens that I’m really starting to love. The small focal length really proves for some interesting shots.
I saw a lot of great scenery including several waterfalls along my hike. The water was freezing, my legs were literally numb when I walked out of the water but it felt great while I was in there. I also found some wild strawberries next to the falls that were very delicious.
