Ride up Emory Pass..

I was invited yesterday to do a day ride up in the Black Range with a couple of friends. Pat and Fred and I took a nice ride up to the Emory Pass overlook and it was the first time I had seen the burn from the Silver fire and how extensively  it had affected one of the most scenic rides in southern New Mexico.

It was pretty stunning to say the least. I took a pic from the overlook and it is of an  area that was completely treed and green a month ago....

And here are a couple of the view from Truth or Consequences while the fire was raging.

For those who aren't aware, this was a fire in Kit's forest and what has occupied her dispatch center for the last few is effectively out now with the advent of the monsoonal rains...thankfully.
