Favorite View

Driving north past Lake Valley, we turn west onto the Berrenda Creek road, drive awhile, top a rise, and this is what we see.  The banner cloud is still with us.  Just to the left of the foreground peak on the right side of the picture, rain is starting to fall -- that's the gray smudge at the bottom of the cloud.  We'll be in the middle of that rain before long. 

In 1988, some of us from a local spiritualistic church fantasized about creating a spiritual retreat up here -- it's reasonably close to Las Cruces, and is very secluded.  This was a totally unrealistic fantasy, of course, but this view has had a particular resonance for me ever since.
