Autumn at Tijeras. 23 x 30.

The cottonwood trees in Tijeras Canyon are over a hundred years old,
and because of their isolation from the trees that populate the Rio
Grande Valley, they seem more jewel-like when the frost turns their
leaves. This year I saw this group of trees—some had turned brown
because of lack of water, a few kept their summer garments of rich
green, while the first few trees turned bright yellow amid the dry
grasses and sage in the rocky canyon.
