Field Study: From the West Mesa, 12 x 18

The bluff that overlooks the Rio Grande as it flows by Albuquerque is
referred to as the West Mesa. Past the river is the bosque or woods
and then the main part of the city. After a distance of some eight
miles of gentle slope called the East Mesa rises the great fault of
the Sandia Mountains. This is how it looks during an autumn
afternoon. At night the coldest air sinks to the river bed. Thus the
trees at the river show more of their fall colors while the heights of
the city still show green. 10-1986
