A beautiful day for a bosque hike! Six of us went on the trek. It is an easy hike, with a lot of variety — it is different every time. We started on the levee and dropped into the bosque once we reached the Sandia Pueblo sign. Many ducks along the way, plus a few geese. We saw a nuthatch and heard a woodpecker. The treat of the day was Marilyn finding the porcupine! For info about the North American porcupine, see https://nhpbs.org/natureworks/porcupine.htm.

Thanks Jabeen for driving and taking photos.
