Greenie Peak 24Oct12/ view of Midnight Meadows fire
Oct 24 Kat and I took a drive up to Greenie Peak. It is the highest mountain Peak in thee state of New Mexico that you can drive straight to the top of (12600ft/3000m).
To the far right are the Red River ski slopes, a bit to the left are a few fuzzy buildings in the Red River upper valley, more to the left Eagle's Nest Lake is showing to either side of a cindercone, and to the far left all the smoke is from the Midnight Meadows fire. This panoramic shot was stiched together from four photos, and covers roughly a 90 deg arc.
Here is my two-wheel drive truck back down at the bottom of the mountain near Midnight meadows next to the "Four wheel drive only" sign. Hehe. Most of the folks I meet up top are Texans and Oklahomans driving lifted jeeps, sit on four-wheelers, and odysseys. They are always amazed to find me up top there in a two wheel drive sport truck.
