Monsoon Season New Mexico Style

Monsoon season in New Mexico’s Estancia Valley was in full force this month. Each afternoon around 2 p.m. like clockwork enormous and apocalyptic clouds gathered setting the stage for epic thunderstorms.

At times 4-5 could be seen at once across the unobstructed views of the landscape, which is more than 6,000 feet above sea level. They dropped as much as an inch of rain in less than half an hour before retiring for the day. The rain is much needed in this part of the USA.
