These photos were taken at the Frank Ortiz Dog Park in town, a few weeks ago. It’s one of our favorite spots. I spent an hour or so trying to figure out who “Frank Ortiz” was/ is, by researching old newspaper articles – to no avail. Whoever he is, the dog park in his name is a wonderland. It consists of about 135 acres of unfenced, hilly, sun-soaked New Mexico land. Dropping into the sandy arroyos is a great workout, but Mesa and I love to walk the high trails, which give great vistas of the city.
