Adore Galore

I have over 300 photos from our little excursion to New Mexico, Banana has about 400 and the Pup has around 200 so I have been mentally sorting through them to only bring the highlights, its not easy. We drove about 100 miles everyday in search of whatever it was we were searching for; and whatever it was we found it still didnt stop us from going ou the next day. It should be taken into consideration that my parents house is 30 miles from Albuquerque so going there and back is 60 already.

Winter wonderland at the SunGod Lodge

Rio Grande Gorge. This was scary as the bridge would vibrate and wiggle a little when the semis would pass and the narrow walking path on both sides was slightly elevated about 10 inches and covered in frozen snow.

Some New Mexico buildings are so damn photogenic.

Santurario de Chimayo (google it)

Postcard Perfect.

Gotta have some skeletons.

And some window displays.

The snow was in the mountains, in the valley it was nice enough to catch these big catfish. I fileted them breaded them and fried them and we ate them so fast you will have to imagine how good they looked and tasted.

I love the blue doors! Colored doors turn me on. How does your little guy do in the car, do you sing and have games?

Real: dinner was a snack there are five of us (mom and dad) and that many filets was like "the little ones are a snack and those two big ones we'll share.

Pinknest: I cant wait for your New Mexico post.

Buff: high altitude yes but valley still..high is a the 10 to 12 thousand mark this was only around the couple thousand mark. Santa Fe the city sits at near 7000 and albuquerque is more than 5.

Dana: what a blue huh?

Har: thanks

LarC: precious to be sure and there is only one rio grande..that other one is faker.

Aka: we just rock out to local radio...
