Resa’s Tree in Morning Light

I was thinking that Resa’s tree might turn all yellow before turning brown; however, we had a har frost last night that turned the lower leaves brown. Many of the trees in the bosque that were yellow last night turned brown today.

Civic Plaza


Most of Civic Plaza in Downtown Albuquerque is fenced off while they expand what looks like a kid killer play area. I’m not sure what the textured designs and bubbled bumps are supposed to be with their no slip, granular texture. I couldn’t get close enough to feel the surface, but it looks very rough; if it’s as rough as it looks, I believe kids will skin their palms, knees, elbows and faces when they land on the gritty surfaces sliding down the slides. Or when they trip, and fall. But then again, maybe it’s a high tech, very soft, no slip, granular surface?
