    Suburbia all Around

    by BruceDunning Written May 24, 2013

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The disappointment was to continued development of homes in all directions from the city. Even though they have water problems that will increase over the years, they still allow more homes built. Some are of pitched roofs, but a lot are styled to look like adobe types of the Indians, stucco over concrete. Ugly either way

    High Crime Area!

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you are exploring on your own, please beware of the following areas:

    DOWNTOWN: anywhere north of Copper Street or south of Silver, or east of 1st street especially at night as there are many homeless and frequent muggings

    Avoid the area called The War Zone... ask at your hotel desk for specifics, as the exact "borders" are a little confusing

    Thunderstorms come quickly

    by Fewf Written Jul 30, 2006

    As I was walking along through the bosque, I suddenly noticed a thundercloud way over to the east, in the mountains. I turned and started to walk towards downtown so I could hide under a roof, but I couldn't walk fast enough. It seemed as if the cloud rolled down the mountainside and kept its momentum as it slammed into the city. Within minutes, there were lightning flashes. Within a couple more minutes, there were tiny droplets blowing around in the wind, and some impressively loud thunderclaps. Finally, the rain started coming down full-force, and the wind blew the water around like snowdrifts. I loved it, but if I hadn't been wearing that windbreaker, or if I'd been wearing something nicer than my ancient, colorless jeans, it wouldn't have been so fun. Even so, I ended up hiding behind the leeward side of a building.
