Photos from the high grasslands of New Mexico

See, Mimi? Green.

A subtler shade than one encounters in Louisiana, of course, but green. Actually, this photo fails to show just how green the roadside plants are.

I stopped on the way home from brunch on Saturday to shoot a few pics. Here is one showing what I see, and enjoy immensely, when I commute in Albuquerque. Vast expanses and lots of sky. Of course, I live on the edge (for now) of town and often drive up on the west mesa where this picture was taken.

Here is a local mural on the fringe of the downtown area, snapped while at a stoplight.

I will have some more later.

I love New Mexico! ...even as a lifelong Minnesotan, I think it's beautiful.
