Back from a week vacationing in the glorious canyon country of Colorado and Utah (you can see by the picture – the Colorado River upstream from Moab) why I’m not all that thrilled to be back), some accumulated detritus to start out a Monday.
- First, a note from the road: on State Route 95, the scene of the Monkey Wrench Gang’s first and finest hour. We sometimes forget that was fiction.
- While I was away, a fascinating discussion broke out on the problem of water conservation and groundwater recharge. The case study is Southern California, but the issue connects nicely with the arguments here in Albuquerque about water conservation and recharge in the Rio Grande inner valley. (See also Chris Brooks for more on the issue.)
- Staci Matlock had a nice story over the weekend about Cochiti Pueblo and the changes wrought by dam built in their midst.
- Still sorting out the arms control deal announced today, but if you’re interested in the background, check out this by the Albuquerque writer known as Plutonium Page.
