Just returned from a trip to Albuquerque, NM. I found a little time to paint and had seen this spot earlier in the week as we drove by it. The entrance to the path is near 8 foot tall carvings in still-rooted cottonwood trees- very cool. I walked about 100 yards to the Rio Grande River and set up. I was looking for sun this time, as it was about 30 degrees that morning- but nice and sunny, and thankfully no wind. This took about 1 1/2 hours.
