Students arrived to find cooler temperatures in the Carson National Forest. Several days gave forth snow showers that only lasted a little while but dusted the juniper pine trees with white.
Now the weather is windy and dry and forest fires are breaking out in the Taos area. The beginning of June Term was delayed due to road closures resulting from a fire near Sipapu. Smoke could be seen on the SMU in Taos campus from this fire as well as from a larger forest fire in Alpine Arizona.
