Southeast View of Rabbit Ear Spires in Winter

Eastern Organ Mountains, New Mexico

*For three very cold days in early January, we were at bivouac near Old Woman Springs in Indian Hollow.  We sat waiting and hoping for a dense snowstorm to break over the Organ Mountains. We awoke the third morning to a hint of clearing .  As we climbed to a chosen viewpoint on the old Red Dot Route to upper Indian Hollow, the storm passed and the fog rapidly began to lift from the  Rabbit Ear Spires.  For a few moments, the early morning light  lent a warm color to the Spires, and the wind had not yet removed the delicate frosting from the vegetation.  We were able to snap a few images before wind cleared the vegetation of snow, and we were left under a cloudless sky.
