A friend on mine...B you know who you are...shared a beautiful picture on the mountain she gets to look at every morning on her way to work. Since we were going to take a drive through our mountain pass I thought I would share ours. We were traveling from West El Paso where I live to Northeast El Paso.
You will notice the cluster of houses at the bottom of this little hill, well my house is in that cluster somewhere. Now notice the pall of smoggy gunk in the back ground. Well that would be our "friendly" neighbor to the south, Juarez the murder capital of Mexico. Thank you so much for sharing your violence and pollution with us. Why don't you ask us for more money "good" neighbor. OK enough...that is for another blog.
This next picture is coming down the other side of the mountain. Notice how much better the air quality is on this side of town. And we are suppose to be the exclusive side of town, LOL. This side of town is where most of the military is located.
These last 2 pictures are a view of the mountains coming home. While they have interesting shapes, they are covered with nothing but ugly scrub grass and cactus. I would like pine trees but I guess in the desert that would be asking too much. If we get a lot of rain (not often) they will turn a little green.
