Acequia Madre – The Neighborhoods of Santa Fe, New Mexico

Acequia Madre – The Neighborhoods of Santa Fe, New Mexico

My regular Saturday morning walk through the neighborhoods of Santa Fe takes me not only through the secretive streets and old burro alleys but also through the four seasons of the high desert.  With the warming, dry breeze that blows over the rooftops in early spring I walk along the Acequia Madre, (Mother Ditch) on the historic Eastside.  I couldn’t help but stop and take this photo because this year the snow melt has allowed us to have the acequia and the Santa Fe River flow everyday through downtown.  It’s the third oldest irrigation ditch in the United States. Except for tribes and Pueblos, ditch member have the oldest water rights in the state.  The annual ditch clean-up is in April and the whole town is always eager to participate.  I look forward to seeing you in the neighborhood.

 

This week I want to let you know Neal Frank, owner of  Santa Fe Pens has a new website!
Santa Fe Pens is proud to announce the creation of  their website at www.santafepens.com

Continued success,

Michael Umphrey

The Neighborhoods of Santa Fe, New Mexico-Camino Pequeno

The Neighborhoods of Santa Fe, New Mexico-Camino Pequeno

Dear followers:

On several social media channels I publicized “A Walk in the Woods” highlighting Camino Pequeno.  I made a mistake publicizing this access through posted private property, and regret the impact on the Camino Pequeno community.  There is no wildlife preserve or other publicly-accessible conservation land accessible from Camino Pequeno.  I advise you to respect private property and avoid trespassing on Camino Pequeno.

With highest regards,

Michael Umphrey
