Dusk in the Desert: For Skywatch


These photos were taken at dusk at the Chihuahuan Desert Nature Park, northeast of Las Cruces, New Mexico. We were in the Doña Ana Mountains looking toward the San Andres Mountains, San Augustin Mountains, and the Organ Mountains, with the Jornada Basin below.



Be sure to check out Skywatch to see skies from all over the world.
