This was the view looking back from the way we came. As you see -- or, rather, don't see -- Dos Cabezas peaks and even higher slopes are shrouded in thick rainclouds. Such was our view in every direction on Sunday morning.
We drove out to what Willcox calls Twin Lakes (and what I call ponds) to the bird-watching area, and views there was also different from most days.
The cottonwoods in Historic Railroad Park are taking on more of a winter appearance.
On our way back home, with clouds still hanging low, the sun struggled to come out, but as we climbed the 900 feet from the flats to the ghost town we found ourselves with our heads in the clouds once again.

When the temperature is 13 degrees Fahrenheit in Willcox (yesterday morning), what is it up in Dos Cabezas, 900 feet higher in elevation? Luckily, there was no wind when the morning sun lured me outdoors with Sarah into a thoroughly frost-kissed mountain world.

This is the view toward the Dos Cabezas peaks from the back of our winter cabin. We usually have a view of the southern of the two peaks, but not on Friday morning, with a low-lying cloud serving as a thick veil. Heavy, wet snow covered the ground and clung to branches. It was a magical scene. Today, three days later (New Year's Eve), there is still snow on north-facing slopes and in shaded areas in our mountains.
