Thanks much Heidrun. Ya even tho the water is a lot lower I'm sure the air is more humid in the immediate area. Hard to tell on the photo, but it's down there quite a ways. Didn't pay much attention to height, but from what I remember, it must be 30 or 40 ft or maybe a bit more.

Desert vegetation IS fascinating in their survival !
Alongside the Rio Grande this one might have access to more moisture !

Thank you much Katy. I don't know how these survive the harsh winters. Inside the canyon, I can understand better account of it being warmer, but there is a lot of them after the South end of the Canyon, and that is warmer than the higher elevation Desert on the North end of this Canyon
We have them on the Desert North end of this canyon area, but only a few and not so large.
I don't see them North of Taos, even tho this canyon extends a long ways North of Taos along this valley on the West side of the Sangre de Cristo Mtn range.
Considerably higher elevation 7,000 ft in the Taos area. Espanola area 45 miles south of Taos is lower elev. Don't remember off hand, I'd have to look it up.
Just tried to look it up, and a little confusing, but seems to be a little over 1,000 ft difference.
