Photo of the Day: Albuquerque

Recently, I made a trip to Albuquerque, New Mexico. The landscape throughout the area seemed to change everywhere I went, which was crazy impressive! I’ll post some of the photos I took for you to see.

 

Albuquerque
Some areas of Albuquerque offered amazing views of the rest of the city and the mountains.

 

The_Yards
Albuquerque used to be (and, in some ways, still is) a bustling train hub. Some of the old train yards are no longer used as a main hub, so now “The Yards” employs itself as a cool spot for events like wine tastings, art fairs, and farmer’s markets.

 

ABQ Yards
One of the abandoned buildings in The Yards. I thought this was a cool perspective through the broken glass. I like that someone thought the place was “spooky.” At night, I bet it really is — with the moon shining through the broken colored glass onto all that debris inside, casting crazy shadows every which way!

 

Old Town
Old Town Albuquerque is a colorful neighborhood with lots of shops and Mexican restaurants, and the museums are right next door.

 

Rio Gorge Bridge
In the northern part of New Mexico, I drove over the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge and looked down over 600 feet into the gorge that the river runs through. I even got to see a group of mountain goats while I was there.

 

66 Diner
There are few things more “American” than eating breakfast at a 50s-feelin’ joint right on old Route 66. Excellent bonus: the food was great!
