Albuquerque

I don’t seem to be doing a very good job of blogging this year. I went to Albuquerque in February. I didn’t take many pictures. I wish I had taken more, the weather and the light were wonderful. I’d always wanted to visit Albuquerque. My dad’s grandparents lived in the city when he was a kid so he tells stories about visiting in the 50s and 60s. I’m sure it was much different then. This is the church on the old square which probably looks very much the same.

The day we drove back a cold fog developed which settled on everything in a thick frost. The fog eventually turned to snow. Much of the country we drove through was still suffering from extreme drought, particularly parts of southwest Kansas. It was very sad, even the yucca had lost their leaves.
