Science: Geographic location: New Mexico-Albuquerque Albuquerque is the largest city in New Mexico and is located in the high desert. Its modern centre contrasts with the old town, dating from 1706, the year in which the city was founded as a Spanish colony. The old town is full of historic adobe buildings, such as the Church of San Felipe de Neri, five museums and different shops selling handicrafts from Native Americans. Nearby you will find the Cultural center of the Pueblo Population: 559.277 (2016) Foliage/Fauna: Albuquerque is a rich and vibrant region filled with unique vegetation and animals. Here are 16 breathtaking examples that will make you grab your backpack and explore the ABQ landscapes' flora and fauna. 1. Cane Cholla Cactus Cane Cholla Cactus, or "walking stick cactus," is the tall slender cactus with a wood skeleton that is used for canes and walking sticks. The cane cholla is the most common species of cholla in New Mexico. It is a bushy cactus with spiny, cylindrical, fleshy stems, which when dead show a latticed woody skeleton. The spines are very finely barbed and difficult to remove from flesh, but are beautiful to look at - from a distance. 2. Bobcats The bobcat is crepuscular. They mostly keep on the move from three hours before sunset until about midnight, and then again from before dawn until three hours after sunrise. 3. Cottonwood Trees The Rio Grande cottonwood, a welcome sight to pioneers in the desert because it often signaled water, typically reaches 50 to 60 feet in height, with a trunk of three feet in diameter. Some of the grand old cottonwoods in the Rio Grande Valley have reached 90 feet in height, with trunks five feet across.
