Albuquerque N. Diversion Channel
New Mexico

The northern diversion channel, also called an "arroyo", is part of the flood control system of Albuquerque, New Mexico. The concrete structure is ameanable for creating paved trails on either side. There is a bench and a fantastic view of the Sandias to the east, an overlook of Big I and the Petroglyph volcanos to the west,  and the Valles Caldera to the north.

Unfortunately, there was some graffiti and trash caught by the camera. Also, the cloud conditions were changing quickly, so some regions aren't as contiguous as I'd like.

February, 2010: Completely rebuilt for more faithful colors.

More About New Mexico

New Mexico is a state located in the southwestern region of the United States. Inhabited by Native American populations for many centuries, it has also been part of the Imperial Spanish viceroyalty of New Spain, part of Mexico, and a U.S. territory. Among U.S. states, New Mexico has the highest percentage of Hispanics at 45% (2008 estimate), being descendants of Spanish colonists and recent immigrants from Latin America. It also has the third-highest percentage of Native Americans after Alaska and Oklahoma, and the fifth-highest total number of Native Americans after California, Oklahoma, Arizona, and Texas. The tribes represented in the state consist of mostly Navajo and Pueblo peoples. As a result, the demographics and culture of the state are unique for their strong Spanish, Mexican, and Native American cultural influences. At a population density of 16 per square mile, New Mexico is the sixth most sparsely inhabited U.S. state.[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_mexico]
