I’ve been otherwise occupied over the last week, so I haven’t been paying my usual attention to the river. But when I went out yesterday for a bike ride, it was wonderfully high – 3,700 cubic feet per second through Albuquerque, which I think is the highest it’s been this season. This picture was taken from the old Alameda Bridge, which is a great place to walk out and look at the river. The water’s overtopping the island in the middle of the stream there. Another great view spot right now is the Montano Bridge. On the south side pedestrian walkway, they built little observation decks. The one in the middle looks out on one of the islands where they’ve cut little stream paths for minnow habitat. The water’s high enough to fill them right now with the sort of low flow water the little fishies need.
