High up in the Organ Mountains, far above the Mesilla Valley, you will find the beginning of the Soledad Canyon Trail. It is a beautiful spot to be in; to stand quietly, to listen to the hawks and the doves and the cactus wrens, and to look across the river valley at mountain range after mountain range stretching toward southern Arizona.
The only other sound we heard when we were there was the ranger's truck as he drove up to close the gates for the night.
After that, nothing but the soft winds and the cooing of the doves.
For skies all over the world, be sure to visit Skywatch Friday.
