Winter Days at Kuaua

The winter landscape at Kuaua:  dark rust willows and tall black-lace cottonwoods line the river, and behind the bosque, snow is scattered on the cloud-shrouded Sandia Mountains.  The cold Rio Grande sluggishly flows through the bosque, its eastern shore lined with Canada geese huddled together to find warmth.  How different life must have been here for the ancient residents of this pueblo, a life based on fires, fur, and blankets made of feathers.
