main attraction in Albuquerque was visiting my brother, John, and
sister-in-heart, Lois. I could not understand their moving from
their lush home on Mercer Island to dry, arid Albuquerque until
I spent one winter in the Pacific Northwest. After 11 years in the
drizzly gloom telling themselves that the summers were worth it,
they decided they needed more sunshine in their lives. They built
a beautiful pueblo style home in Placitas on a street named "Six
Range Point" because their site affords a view of six mountain
from their back yard
have beautiful sunset shows
share a love of feathered friends and they have bird feeders everywhere.
Hummingbirds are frequent visitors and sometimes if you sit still
enough they get hungry enough to feed even when you're this close.
