Turtle Head Rock

Turtle Head Rock

This rock in the Sandia foothills doesn’t have an official name, but it always looks like a turtle’s head to me. I took the photo shortly before sunset.


Solstice Seed Mandala

Seed Mandala Detail

Albuquerque’s Open Space Visitor Center sponsors a mandala-making event each winter solstice (or at least, on the Sunday closest to the solstice). The mandalas are made entirely of bird seed, and migrating geese and cranes eat the artwork during the following week. This is a photo of part of a mandala made last year.
