Not that old, this was taken in 2014. I was determined to check out our Outlet Mall to see if anything new had been added ..... it's not an indoor kinda mall, there are bunch of stores surrounding a concrete walkway with benches, really stupid if ya ask me cuz when there's a sand storm you get to eat sandburgers, Anyway, as I was driving west down Loop 375 to the mall I noticed how clear the view was and decided to take a few shots. Most of what you see in the distance is New Mexico just beyond where the dried up Rio Grande River is. I think you can see some of the housing areas like La Union NM or Chamberino NM and possibly Anthony TX/NM, I'm not really sure. This is the west side of the Franklin Mountains. Can you see for miles and miles when you're driving around?

I made the mistake of going to the Outlet mall just after it first opened but I'd forgotten to check the weather and ended up in a sand storm before I'd gotten outta there, talk about sand burgers ..... whats worse is that sand gets into the eyes as well, it wasn't fun.

No, we can't. We live in a hilly area. The hills block the wide view. I used to live in the north of Germany. There are completely flat areas. People like to joke that you can already see in the morning who's coming to visit you in the afternoon.

When I drive around....farmer's fields, sometimes in grass for hay, out further, acres and acres of sagebrush, houses, further north, acres and acres of fruit trees and finally the Columbia river and fruit trees and houses. Cows, a horse or two. The Cascade mountains if you look a certain way.

New Mexico? Really great take of that. Is the Rio Grande really all dried up too what a shame. Much like parts of Spain too then. So did you get to find what you wanted or liked there? Thank you for this one.
