Another Bench

Another Bench
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
11/11/2007

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?”

Little Alien Cacti

Little Alien Cacti

These little stick figure cacti always look so life people like to me. These two look like they are playing hide and seek behind the rocks …. or maybe trying to hide from mom and dad because they want to go home.

I don’t know what the proper name for these cacti are … any help welcome?
