Taos, NM (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: A better View from about 3 miles south of my house, and 200 feet higher elev. A few days ago that peak was white. I think the wind does a good sweeping job up there. That Peak is over 13,000 ft.

Thank you much Linda. Eagle Nest area is the best view for this Mtn. Especially from higher up near the top of the pass between Eagle Nest & Red River, I like that view.

So great to see Wheeler this way, Gil. When we come from the east, I try to pick it out around Eagle's Nest. This is such a beautiful shot and perspective of it. 10!

Gorgeous mountain scenery !
Sun and wind have changed the wintry look considerably !
Love the clear blue sky, though !

Thank you much Kathy, for your great comments.
Likely it was not this one you saw. There is only a couple places from Taos that you can see this mtn, and only a very short glimpse, and if you are not looking for it, you won't see it unless you know where to look at.
There are a lot more mountain tops almost as high and a lot more visible from Taos. And depends on what highway you were on.
This view is from the South side.. Only this little spot you can see it from. If you are on Highway 64 via Angel Fire and Eagle Nest, then you have a great and close view of it from the East side.

Beautiful mountain, Gil! I remember how excited I was when I drove down through Taos one spring and saw snow capped mountains off in the distance! Makes me wonder if this might have been one of them---does it ever hold snow late in the spring, do you know?

below32,
Nope, never been up there. Never had the time. I've been on some trails close by with Search & Rescue years ago, but now that I am retired, my knees would never allow for such walking.
