Life and death in Northern New Mexico

Rangewriter

Northern New Mexico is high country, with elevations ranging from 5,000 feet to over 13,000 feet above sea level. Precipitation is low—less than 14 inches per year. When it comes it’s usually in the form of snow or quick gully washers. At first glance, the land looks intimidating and desiccated. But on closer inspection plant life abounds.
