Albuquerque Firefighter Turns Devastation Into Beauty
Albuquerque Firefighter Joseph Mark Chavez took it upon himself to turn devastation of the 2003 Albuquerque wildfire along Albuquerque’s Bosque into a beautiful place for the public to enjoy.
This Albuquerque area was severely affected by the 2003 Bosque wildfire. Fireman Chavez took it upon himself to turn such a tragedy into a unique and artistic form of love for Albuquerque’s Bosque. Chavez used scorched Cottonwood tree stumps that were intact into eye catching and heart warming works of art.
