Note the two rather large, white, circular structures far below.
Those are water well / pumping stations, providing water to much of Albuquerque - and to enable a continual oasis of eastern forest or floodplain riparian trees, as opposed to something more logical - oasis spots with SW native plants, just more concentrated and creatively designed.
One can observe thirsty cottonwood, ash, sycamore, maple, and the like down low, where it is artificially or naturally wet. While numerous species of native, xeric trees and other plants flourish right above.
But no vision here for that, so no dice. Sad, isn't it?
Imagine the possibilities of retrofitting other areas of our cities, from ill-contrived, all-oasis areas into appealing, more effective, and well-designed oasis spots?
