Rio Grande Nature Center

We spent some quality time this afternoon at the Rio Grande Nature Center - we had been looking for different trails to access the river, and this fit the bill!

Today the river was full, but not overflowing into the flood plain, and there is still no hint of green...

But it was sunny, and in the 60's, and we were together :-)

Additional Info:
- Trails are well marked and easy - there were a lot of families around.  You can pick up a 1-page trail map for some minimal cost at the visitor's center, but it is not as necessary as at some places.
- Parking is $3 / car (more for vans)
- Biking and walking in is free
- Street parking a block away is plentiful and free
- Getting there is easy: Rio Grande Blvd, turn West on Candelaria until it dead-ends, and park!
