Sunrise, Sunset and Snowfall in The Watermelons..

"The window of my soul I throw wide open to the sun  -John Greenleaf Whittier

At 10,678 the Sandia Mountains rise above the Rio Grande Rift Valley stretching up out of the New Mexico dry soil and into the cool alpine air.  Not your typical mountain range, Sandia is topped with limestone that was once on the ocean floor around 300 million years ago.  Being isolated in such a hot region the weather the mountain can create is amazing.  A whiteout can turn to a bursting Lilac sunset within minutes.  A mountain this beautiful would only be home in a state as beautiful as New Mexico.  Sunsets in New Mexico maybe some of the prettiest in the world and theres nothing better than to warm your bones in such a beautiful warm light.....
