Exploring the Rio Grande's West Cliffs
by Chris Lucas

You've seen the West Cliffs as you head west on I-40 across the Rio Grande: the houses atop it sit seemingly on the edge, precipitously inclined toward the river. The cliffs stretch along the river northward from the highway for a few miles, meandering alongside but above the river, until the floodplain widens at a bend in the rio at the La Luz del Oeste community, just before the Montaño Bridge. It's an area of the city that can be seen from across the river, yet I knew little about it. There are interesting things to explore there...  Read More

Huning Highlands Historic Homes: A Stone "Bodega"

Huning Highlands Historic Homes: A Stone "Bodega"
by Chris Lucas

Things are happening in Huning Highlands. Part of the Huning Highlands Historic Mother's Day Home Tour included this former local market, above. The home is an under-re-construction stone building in the north section of the neighborhood.
