|A snowy New Years morning in the San Simon valley|
2014 was a good year for rain in the high desert of southwestern New Mexico. The Painted Pony Resort received 14.69" of rain this year and to top things off, the estate received its first snow fall on New Years day. While the mountains received a light dusting of snow on Christmas day and additional snow over the next week in the high country, out in the valley, we were greeted by snow on the first morning of the new year. Hoping for a continuation of the rainfall patterns which will result in beautiful spring wild flowers and poppies carpeting the valley.
