Rio Grande Bosque in Los Lunas, New Mexico
I grew up in Los Lunas, New Mexico but never walked the Bosque trails until I moved back here in 2017.
Corrales, New Mexico
The Rio Grande Bosque in Corrales, New Mexico is wild and unruly. Prickly thickets surround the Winter Trees and provide habitat for many species of animals and migratory birds.

This next series of images in my Winter Trees collection is from the Rio Grande Bosque near Coors and Mantano in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
The Lensball shows a different view of the world and in the midst of our current collective situation known as COVID19, I think we could all benefit by taking a moment to see things from an alternate perspective.
There's Water In The Trees
Due to the runoff from heavy snow fall this winter, The Rio Grande River is running at an unprecedented level. The water is all the way out in the trees and when you drive over the Main Street Bridge in Los Lunas, it feels like you might fall in because the water is so high. My family moved to Lunas in 1982 and I don't ever recall seeing the river this way.
The truth of the matter is that the Rio Grande should (and would) probably flood like this every year except for all the diversionary tactics we humans employee to mess it all up.
These photos are from a few of different outings to Bosque Open Space areas in Rio Rancho, Corrales, and Los Lunas.
All photos shot with a Motorola Moto X4 and edited with Snapseed.
