Green!!

Gallup to Mancos, CO
We arrived just it time to experience the first real rain of spring! Water flowing in the gutters, new snow on the peaks, the whole enchilada!

We camped a little east of Mancos on top of a ridge at about 8000’ and got to sit through a couple of rain showers. The drive north from Gallup was downwind and that’s always nice.

The scene was mostly shades of brown and tan until we left Cortez heading east and climbed into the mountains. As I recall it’s been largely brown and tan since leaving mid Texas. West through Texas and New Mexico, south into Arizona – all browns and tans. The green hills of southwest Colorado are a pleasant surprise!
