We’ve gotten a fair amount of rain lately (finally!) and I was hopeful the Sandias would reopen tomorrow. To my great surprise, they reopened Friday — which meant I was able to spend the weekend hiking. It is quite moist (and humid!) near the Crest, which is where I found these gung-ho bees chowing down an a pale yellow thistle blossom.
