"A charming village just minutes from ABQ" Corrales by kymbanm

Corrales Travel Guide: 14 reviews and 25 photos

A little bit different...

Corrales is surrounded by urban living - yet remains soft and rural in it's own nature.

Folks smile as you pass, the houses range from new buildlings, centuries old adobe homes, to ever present in rural Americn trailer homes. Dirt roads, green trees, waterways, horses, and all those bits of country life - all located just a short distance from the city.

My family has called Corrales home for the past 15 years. The wonderful surroundings, and the charming people who are here make this a very special place to live.

I you want to read a little page that provides you with a real FEELING of being in Corrales ... check out Peachitish's Corrales page ...... it is so real, my eyes tear with emotion as I read ...

The bosque .......

The bosque is pronounced 'boss-kay', and refers to the green strip of growth that hugs the banks of the Rio Grande. Being surrounded by desert, this type of growth stands out ... you can smell the life....

I took this particular photo outside my parent's driveway. The little dragonfly was a surprise :) Usually, I just come across toads .... lots of toads .....

Bosque life .....

Since the cocerns with West Nile virus erupted out here a few years ago, the village has been regularly spraying to keep the mosquito population down. As a result, the local toads have suffered.

A few have moved into my parent's yard, and now have been around for at least a couple of toad generations. During times of low food availability, Momma-Misha buys meal worms and hand feeds these critters with a special pair of chop sticks .... hence the recently changed name of their home: Toad Hollow :)

    Shame on me!(Lviv page) but this is not my laziness but permanent lack of time; when I have some spare time I prefer admiring fruits of others' work. By the way -Corrales seems to be a bit deserted... ;-))
