These young fellows were having a blast running up and down this hiking trail in the Sandia Mountains. At one point they went up so high I lost sight of them.
Makes me wish I was a kid again!
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.
It was a beautifully stormy -ish, cloudy day here. I love when the big fluffy marshmallow clouds come peeking over Sandia Peak.
We got 10 inches of snow which is the most it has snowed here since 2006. That was on Saturday. By yesterday it was all melted.
I think I have seen the Police Batmobile twice since I have lived here in Albuquerque. I caught it driving down the I-25 heading for the I-40.
I love when the clouds make shadows on the mountain. Taken at the Rio Grande Nature Center.
Hiking on a trail in the foothills of the Sandia Mountains. These two folks were quite knowledgeable about the birds and critters in the area.
I thought this duck was very kind to put on a show for me at the Rio Grande Nature Center.
