View of Sunset Heights

The image shows parts of the Sunset Heights neighborhood. The street to the right is N Oregon, to the left is El Paso Street. The building in the lower half of the image between the two streets is part of the Rio Grande Campus of the El Paso Community College. The mountain to the left is called Mount Cristo Rey; the 29 ft. tall limestone statue of Christ on top serves as a shrine to thousands of faithful in the El Paso and Southern New Mexico area. Tower near M is the Education Building on UTEP Campus. Sun Bowl stadium off to left.
