Wind in the valley is not unusual in the spring but toward the end of May we had an extremely windy day that blew up enough dust to hide the mountain behind us. Trying to see the road in places on the way home from Alamosa was also a challenge. The mountain behind us is Mt. Blanca, a fourteener - a mountain over 14,000' high.
This is our usual view. Walking out the door and seeing this view is a great way to start the day.
