baldy mountain from wilson mesa – midday atop the mesa – by dawn chandler – oil on panel – 12″x24″ – copyright dawn chandler 2013

The fourth (so far) in my series of views of Baldy from Wilson Mesa. With its sun-bleached colors and lack of shadows, this one really captures for me the dry heat of midday in New Mexico. 
Thanks, Clay Pruitt, for the use of your photograph! He took this shot while on an Autumn Adventre Trek at Philmont.
