Blurry in flight photo of the Rio Grande as we were landing. The groves of trees on either side were just aflame with fall leaf colors.
View to the west from the top of damn – so if you watched the TV show Breaking Bad this view is supposed to mean something to you. I was clueless, but snapped the photo anyway so I could try to catch my breath!
Looking east from the top of the damn – that wash or arroyo down below has trails all along the edge (can kind of see on off to the right) which is where we ran. 2 loops of the arroyo.
Jerseys in the grass – I’ve missed this scene!
At the rugby field, looking east to the Sandia Peak where we would be Sunday afternoon.
Alex was on the roster for the A game as a potential sub – though his number was not listed correctly here.
Team huddle around the coach & captains.
Alex wore the #18 jersey. The guy to his right had a goofy hair shave last weekend since he didn’t join the team until after the Arizona trip when all the other Freshmen shaved their heads.
A much needed visit to New Mexico to check in on Alex. Texting & weekend phone calls just weren’t enough especially since we dropped him off on Aug 17th and he wont be back in town until Dec 13th. 1,339 more words
Red shoes making the shoestring, open field tackle.
Oh, yes – the bright red shoes with yellow swoosh holding the ball who looks slightly like he has mange…is my kid……notice the player coming up behind him who also has a partial head shave. That’s your clue that they are freshman.
Now he’s been spun around as his counterpart #11 on the other team attempts to tackle him, but he sees he’s got a player coming up so he continues the spin to try and pass the ball off before going down.
Great action shot as he gets the pass off. Can’t even tell he’s half bald ;)
Pass completed, he falls to the ground and now we can see the top of his head – not the straightest of shaves there, was it?
I love how there is just a him of bare skin from this angle as he looks up to see the play continue.
Here he is down on one knee off to the right, saved this shot more for the mountain view before I noticed he was in it! Tucson sure looks lovely.
