Ski Apache

I know, it is 105 outside and I am talking about skiing. Frankly, as trecherous as the road is up to the ski area, it is much safer for me to do it in the summer! Besides, it is another place to escape the intense heat. (Although it's a dry heat) It is a beautiful place no matter what time of year you go and this was no exception.

The ski area is located on the Mescalero Apache Indian Reservation and includes Sierra Blanca, at an altitude of 12,003 feet. We will get back to the desert -today we remember fondly the 69 degree temperatures in the mountains.
