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.
Bosque Open Space in Corrales, New Mexico.
The river has not overflowed it's banks in Corrales but it's all the way to the top and is still proving much needed water for the Cottonwood Trees.

The flooding is especially pronounced here in Los Lunas.
