Photo of the Week - September 17, 2012


New Mexico is dotted with a variety of these roadside memorials called "Descanso's". They usually commemorate a site where a person died suddenly and unexpectedly, away from home. Recently I have been noticing many descanso's glowing and illuminated at night along the roadsides. This one in particular is using solar power to remind people that "Trish" unfortunately died at this desolate spot. With a full moon rising over the mountains in the background, the impact of the moment and this particular descanso really hit home. I do not know the family of Trish, but it is very obvious that they love and miss her very much. Drive safe everyone.
