Not far from the house there is a "lateral". Laterals are turn-outs from the main irrigation channels of the Rio Grande. They are opened in the spring to feed water to the little ranchitos that are abundant in our area. They also make very nice little walking paths.
Autumn enjoys the walks, and was fond of this graffiti until it was covered up.
Erica and I enjoy them also, but the pace is definitely a little slower with Autumn.
We'll probably be taking fewer walks for a while since Erica will be expanding for the next few months, and then we will have an additional non-walking family member.
Sometimes Autumn needs to take a break from walking.
