In the words of the late Townes Van Zandt, Texas famed singer-songwriter.......it was "snowing on Raton" as we returned from a visit to friends and family in Austin, TX. It was a crisp and windy morning, as the shingles flew off the motel where we had spent the night on Tuesday, and the power chose to shut down and create havoc in the local restaurant!! However, the pass that joins New Mexico to Colorado remained open, and we traveled on our merry way toward home. Although we saw a bit of snow along the way, there was no sign of snow at our castle, nor any signs that we had missed the first snowfall. YEA!! As many of you know....I LOVE THE SNOW!!!! Enjoy the pics!!
