Scenic View of Rio Grande Pueblo Land

Sandia Mountains and the Rio Grande River Bosque at Sunset
This is the most majestic view I have found in the vicinity of Albuquerque.   The lush, fully developed green canopy of the cottonwood trees lining the Rio Grande River has returned anew. I snapped this sunset scenic last evening from an overlook located a short walk from my front door. The vast acreage covered in this panoramic encompasses or borders the homeland of both modern and ancient Native American Pueblo tribes.
