Old Town Albuquerque, New Mexico

Over the years, Albuquerque has been a nice looking town we have passed through on I-40.
This year we decided to take a couple of days to stop and “see the sites” on our trip through. Not nearly enough time!! We could spend a lot more time here and in the surrounding areas! There is so much to see!!
Since we arrived close to noon on Monday, we spent the afternoon exploring Old Town, visiting San Felipe de Neri Church,

Old Town plaza,
With replica of cannons that were buried by the Confederate soldiers during the “war of northern aggression”, so the Union soldiers could not find and use them. Some years later, the Confederate officer returned and showed the local residents where thy were buried.

and the sculpture garden, with the Bear, Clouds and Airplanes

and the depiction of people in everyday life,

And this depiction of the journey in 1598 of over 600 immigrants.

The impression we have gotten has been good…. from the painted overpasses and rock pictures along the interstate, to the history and surrounding views, we know why Albuquerque, and New Mexico, is truly enchanting!
