Celebrate Earth Day

-A A +A
By The Staff

“The most direct road to … (Los Alamos) … was a treacherous washboard running through the Indian Pueblo of San Ildefonso, over the muddy Rio Grande, and then up a series of muddy switchbacks. As we neared the top of the mesa, the view was breathtaking. Behind us lay the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, at sunset bathed in changing waves of color – scarlets and lavenders. Below was the desert with its flatness broken by majestic palisades that seemed like the ruined cathedrals and palaces of some old, great, vanished race. Ahead was Los Alamos, beyond the flat plateau on which it sat was its backdrop, the Jemez Mountain Range. Whenever things went wrong at Los Alamos, and there never was a day when it didn’t, we had one consolation – we had a view.”

This is a quote by Ruth Marshak, wife of John Marshak, who worked on the Manhattan Project. It can be found at Inspiration Point, on the mesa top just above Anderson Overlook as you come up the hill.

It seems appropriate as we once again prepare to celebrate Earth Day.

The Pajarito Environmental Education Center (PEEC) will again host this year’s events, as it has done in recent years.
