Rio Grande Bosque in Albuquerque, New Mexico
This next series of images in my Winter Trees collection is from the Rio Grande Bosque near Coors and Mantano in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Lemitar, New Mexico is a census designated place in Socorro County. The town lies along NM 408 and is easily seen from I-25. I would always notice it from the car window on the way to Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge.
Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge
Deep in the heart of New Mexico lies a magical place known as Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge. Established in 1939, this 30,427 acre refuge is the winter home for tens of thousands of migratory birds such as Sandhill Cranes and Canadian Snow Geese. When the birds show up, the photographers are right behind them but the birds are not the only reason to come here.
La Ladera Rd. Peralta, New Mexico
Most people come out to see the fall colors but I think the real beauty starts in the winter. For the last few years I have been stopping the car on the way to wherever I'm going to take pictures of trees and creating these collections of images aptly named "Winter Trees".
Forgotten But Not Lost
Like many explorers, I found the Kuhn Hotel by accident. Located in the Historic Railroad District of Belen, New Mexico, the Kuhn Hotel sits hidden away behind the underpass on the secret end of a dead end street.
