The Monsoon Season Has Started

This area of the San Luis Valley is beginning to get some much needed rain.  Every afternoon we start seeing the clouds forming over the mountains, and we have had a few significant showers.  Not only are the rains helping the plants, but the wildfires in the area are just about contained.

We are also noticeably cooler.  Our high today was only 66°.


  1. I would love temps of 66. I like the bird picture at the top of your page.

  2. Thanks Teri. That is a picture of a Black Tern that Mark took here at the Alamosa Refuge.

  3. Nice to have cooler weather... but even nicer that the wildfires are under control!
