Trans Pecos Snow Storm
Trans Pecos Snow Storm
October 27, 2020

I spent the last three nights camping on increasingly cold ground in West Texas. This morning my tent was encased in ice. I broke camp with cold-numbed hands and no gloves.

Now I'm relieved to spend the day in a warm car, driving from Marfa to Lordsburg even though it means heading directly into a snowstorm.

The desert transforms and the lens fogs up immediately when I pull over to take a few pictures.

This looks like a Fragrant Ash or Gregg Ash, but it's hard to tell under the snow.
