Terrifying Imagery Of The New Mexico Permanent Drought

I spent the day today hiking around the Pecos Wilderness in New Mexico, where I used to work as a wilderness ranger. Everything looks exactly the same as it did 30 years ago. The Santa Barbara River and the Rio Grande were both the highest I have ever seen them in October.

Bloomberg says that New Mexico is in a terrible drought and all the trees are dying. The man is completely FOS. I have seen no signs of any kind of tree die off anywhere in Northern New Mexico.

    You can’t see it because it’s just below the surface, but it’s there just the same.

    How lucky you are to see such glorious vistas. Some of us have to save and plan our escape (from the city) very carefully before we can see such amazing nature.

    Oh no, rising co2 is causing the leaves to change color. Were doomed!

    Look at all those “dying” Aspens. Hardly a green leaf in the entire stand.

    I camped the Pecos last weekend. I noticed standing pools of water from all the recent rain. I also found it difficult to find dry kindling to start my camp fire.

    Beautiful Steve. Thanks!

    These alarmists are clowns. Evil clowns; but clowns nevertheless.

    You should take a drive to the south. Coming into Ruidoso, you will see entire mountain sides of dead trees. All is not as well as your pristine picture.
