Thursday: Sandia Crest

After class, we drove up from downtown Albuquerque, elevation 5,000 feet, to Sandia Crest.
I suspect that this is an Eastern Fence LIzard,

I can see Texas from here!
View looking west, towards Albuquerque, where the Rio Grande River, 5,000 feet below us, flows south from the state of Colorado, through New Mexico, then divides Texas from Mexico.  Rio Grande translates literally as "Big River", so it should be called the Rio Grande, not the Rio Grande River. Also, it's not very big.
