Our Descanso In The Albuquerque Journal!

My sister got it on their radar:
“Breaking Bad” fans continue to honor Walter White.

North Valley resident Michelle Valdez-Browning and her brother, Marc Valdez, and son Aaron Browning made a descanso near the Nazi compound where White passed away in the show. (A descanso is a roadside memorial that commemorates a site where a person died. They are seen along roads in New Mexico.)

Valdez-Browning says her brother was part of the locations crew who helped scout the various areas.

“He put his heart and soul into finding the right places,” she says.

[UPDATE: Holy, moly! It's going viral! Thought it might, but it's an amazing thing to witness! On the 'Inhabitants of Burque' page on Facebook, as of 12:33 p.m. PDT, it's garnered 963 Likes, 201 Shares, and about 62 comments in ONE HOUR!]

[UPDATE 2: My sister had called Adrian Gomez of the Albuquerque Journal to let him know, but he passed on the information to someone else who seems to have mangled the information in later stories. By that telling, I was part of the Breaking Bad Locations team, which, sadly, wasn't the case. But it's all good!]

[UPDATE 3: My sister heard a news story that did not feature a photo. Nevertheless, Shawna Martinez notes it made KRQE TV-13 News!]

    I would like to donate a pair of "Tidy Whities" to the descanso. Would this be O.K.? Where is it located?

    2. Since it's in the spirit of the show, tightie whities would be fine!
