Green Spaces, Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA

Most homes here do not have green grass yards since this is a desert climate with an average annual rainfall of only 9.5 inches.  Trees do, however, dot the landscape as seen in this early morning image in northeast Albuquerque.

City planners wisely created neighborhood oases with grand old trees and open green spaces. In fact, Albuquerque's Park Management Division maintains and manages more than 286 park sites, 127 median and streetscape sites, and a total of 113 miles of developed urban and soft trails.


Not the type of foliage I would expect in the desert but it almost makes me feel like home - except for the fact that the air is hot, dry, and crackling for lack of humidity.
