Sierra Blanca volcanic mountain range in south central New Mexico.

Sierra Blanca volcanic mountain range

Driving through southern New Mexico I had the Sierra Blanca volcanic mountain range on one side of me, and the Trinity test site on the other side of me. The early morning sunlight hit the mountains just right to give them each a distinctive shade. I’d like to think the ambient Plutonium and Uranium still floating in the air from 1945 allowed just enough haze in the air to give these mountains a nice contrasting color between each of them as well. It’s also good to know that I probably inhaled some leftover radioactive isotopes.
