Mountain Ears

Mountain Ears-0430Mountain EarsMountain Ears - The Rabbit Ear peaks of the Organ Mountains near Las Cruces, New Mexico.

One small part of the Organ Mountain Range in southern New Mexico just outside of Las Cruces, these twin peaks are named after the bunny ears they resemble. This is the northern or back side of the mountains, that faces away from Las Cruces. 
There's at least one walking, not climbing, but walking trail that goes from this side to the other side of the mountains. When I found that out, I made a mental goal to walk that trail one day. There are climbing routes throughout the mountain range that vary in degree of difficulty. I doubt I'll ever do any mountain climbing, but then ever is a long time and ya just never know what you're capable of until you try. 
I'm fondly recalling the 90 degree days with low humidity that we had during this trip to Las Cruces last year.
