Attendance at two conferences, one in Utah and the other in New Mexico, afforded views of mountains.
In Snowbird, Utah, the mountains were snow covered. Between Monday and Wednesday, April 13-15, 24 inches of snow fell.
The scenery in Albuquerque was quite different. The Sandia Mountains were bare or covered with desert vegetation.
In both places, the views were expansive. I could look far out into the distance before my eyes travelled upward, especially in Albuquerque.
