A Country Scene

This is the main irrigation canal that feeds the Rio Grande Valley north of Socorro.  I think that's Polvadera Mountain in the distance.  The cottonwoods are just starting to turn yellow.  I've driven past this area dozens of times on the Interstate, and finally had the time to spend a couple of hours poking around this area.  I had expected small Hispanic-type farms, but what I found was commercial alfalfa farms with huge open sheds filled with hay.
