Today I shot the sunset over the Rio Grande River as it runs its course through the heart of Albuquerque. This is the river that the Spanish Conquistadores followed up into Colorado when they first came up from Mexico searching for El Dorado! Though they never found it, they did bring with them the horse, foreign diseases, their religion, and slavery of the indigenous people.
Some would say, they brought civilization to the area and, in a manner of speaking, they did. The oldest settled and continually occupied city in the US is Santa Fe - right along the Rio Grande!
