Down the Middle Rio Grande…


Most people in Albuquerque see the Middle Rio Grande in flashes, from a bike path or a bridge. But really? That’s no way to know the river. It takes drifting downstream and sometimes running into sandbars.

The river provides water to cities and farmers. But it’s also a place of wildness, and of solace. Here’s an audio postcard from a canoe trip I took down the river last spring with river guide Stephanie DeHerrera.

    Bravo Laura! As a river rat myself, I appreciate how being on the water takes me to another place, no matter how close I am to civilization. It takes on a Zen quality. Water is life and I hope the western drought ends soon for you folks west of the Mississippi.
