|New Mexico State flag - the Zia symbol. In Jan. 2012 the 100th year of state hood was celebrated.|
I could write a whole blog (and may do that one day) on all the comments we got from relatives and friends in NY after we moved 'out west'.
A few short ones are that we were asked what kind of stamps we used and how could we come back and forth to NY so often. NM Magazine used to have an article in each issue - "One of our 50 is Missing!''
These are just photos from us riding around the city and doing some remembering, a few weeks ago. There are tons more pretty things to see and do in that whole area. One is the Tramway at the top of Sandia Crest.
|Chevy on a Stick - northwest corner of Gibson and San Mateo.|
|The famous McDonald's where the women spilled hot coffee on herself and got paid millions of dollars in damages. It is just across street from the Chevy - Northeast corner San Mateo & Gibson.|
|Frontier Restaurant - across from UNM on Central. Best Cinnamon rolls on the planet. When we lived in Los Alamos my SIL would bring a box of these up to us when she came to visit.|
|I just can't mention Albuquerque without saying AmerAsia - a Diem Sum restaurant. It is usually the 1st place we go to after our 6 hour trip down there.|
|And framing the city to the north east is Sandia Mountain. The tram goes up from the west side and there is skiing on the east side.|
