Rio Puerco Valley Landscape

Rio Puerco Landscape

A classic Rio Puerco valley scene, with Cabezon nestled between and behind two other volcanic plugs. It is said that this area was incredibly green and lush just 150 years ago — it’s very hard to imagine. I think it’s one of the driest parts of New Mexico now.

A bare tree in Albuquerque’s Rio Grande bosque. Hawks and eagles often hang out here.


Old Pecos River Bridge

Wooden bridge over the Pecos River at Terrero

An old wooden bridge at Terrero, over the Pecos; I took the photo from a newer (not-so-pretty) bridge. Yes, it really is wooden. I even walked across it and it felt quite stable. But no way would I take a car over it..


Old Gas Station, Northern NM

Old Gas Station, Northern NM

An old gas station — and equally old station wagon — are framed by a classic New Mexican sky and classic New Mexican weeds. It’s been an incredibly dry year so far.
