The front (top photo) and back (bottom photo) of a bus stop bench here in Albuquerque.
This one is on the opposite side of Albuquerque, to the east, in the foothills of the Sandia Mountains at Elena Gallegos Open Space.
The dedication on the bench reads:
Berton L. Veinot
He loved nature and this place. Rest awhile
and listen. His spirit is in the wind, birdsong
and foothills on the trail.
“…the wind is still in the trees?”
A bench in the middle of an empty field at the Rio Grande Nature Center. I guess this is the bench for you if you’re feeling the need for solitude.

Coming in for a landing at the Rio Grande Nature Center.
I think this my be one of my favorite sculptures around Albuquerque. Again, there is no mention, that I can find, of who the artist is.
I didn’t see a plaque explain the statue or naming the artist.
The weather was spectacular today. The wind and hail was so loud that it drowned out my music. I love a good storm!!
There’s not much out there in the way of information about this typical Route 66 Motel, El Don. This sign, however, is iconic.
