Curtain sets on one winter & is ready to rise on another
September — spring in the southern hemisphere, fall in northern. Several of my friends and colleagues have been in Portillo, Chile, I’ve read their Facebook posts and looked at their images of snow-covered mountains, while it was hotter than Hades in these parts. As they began filtering back home, I received this beautiful image of spring skiing at Coronet Peak in New Zealand:
The high peaks of the Rockies — as far south as New Mexico — got their first snow dusting of the coming season. Angel Fire is in the northern part among New Mexico’s highest peaks.
Here’s to a great ski season this winter — which will also translate to easing of drought and wildfire danger next summer.
