Be sure to get outside and enjoy the beautiful weather and views this weekend. The high on Saturday will be around 64 and 56 on Sunday - cooler temps but still hot in the sun. Perfect hiking weather. The cottonwoods are changing and the vistas are incredible in every direction. Also, this is a great weekend for bird watching - the birds are very active and we just saw an eagle over Abiquiu Lake.
