as we continue west ready for new adventures not really having a detestation only a direction we head to Albuquerque where i knew mary would enjoy shopping in Old Town square
mary looked at local native artists works located around the square
while i went around the square looking for photo ops becuase i’ve been there before.
details everything is in the details
it’s not that i am not into native crafts matter of fact i have baskets from all over the world but i found this leaning against one of the churches columns.
and this madonna imbedded into the church yard tree, who would do this
you can see albuquerque does have a sense of humor looking at this fire hydrant
along with an interesting native american cultural center which doesn’t allow pictures oh well
albuquerque has lots of interesting places around it one being in the suburbs Petroglyph National Monument which we climbed in a hot New Mexico day
right here in the suburbs
pretty cool anyways and to think people lived here thousands of years ago
oh it does rain there very heavy at times but rainbows abound
we were almost alone in our campsite given the time of year but people did come through. we learned about another close by site Tent Rocks national monument a close drive away but i listened to a park volunteer who sent us around the long way, took four hours but pretty. a cafe along the way
the masks are made by a waiter at the cafe who sells them there. there is no camping at Tent Rocks Nat’l so it’s a day trip, because of the changeability of weather it can be a challenge, as you can see by our pictures
going from this sunshine to these clouds
really cool so we began up the trail hoping for the best
then the clouds blew away
this is all formed from rain and wind pretty cool huh?
so now we continue on our journey west on interstate 40. i hope you are enjoying these posts as much as the boys at work whom i sent text messages from my phone.
we encourage everyone to explore this beautiful country it truly inspires.
