Daily Postcard: It's just not Christmas without the truck! Been wondering where the famous Christmas truck is? It has been spotted parked outside of Don Taylor's Photography at 181 Central Park Square.

Trails are open dawn to dusk 365 days a year, but Bandelier is alerting visitors not to let the short days of winter catch them unaware and to be sure to leave the park before dark. Also, strong winds and hazard trees because of recent fires and forest die-back have left some areas of the park potentially dangerous during times of high winds.

Daily Postcard: Ponderosa Pine Forest At Bandelier

on December 12, 2018 - 6:19am

The Ponderosa Pine Forest at Bandelier National Monument gets more moisture from winter snows and summer rains than lower elevation zones. Ponderosa pine forests are found at middle elevations on the Pajarito Plateau where increased snowfall and summer rains create wetter conditions. The Ancestral Pueblo people used these trees as roof beams for their homes and hunted the mule deer, which thrive in this community. Ponderosa pine forests provide important habitat for a wide range of species such as Abert's Squirrels, Red-tailed Hawks and Western Bluebirds. Source: Bandelier.
