...And then, we were in New Mexico! We drove straight east to Albuquerque, then turned north in the morning and headed to Denver for Day 3.
|Most of New Mexico looked like this.|
|We aren't big baseball fans, but we HAD to go to an Isotopes game in Albuquerque...|
they named their team after the team in The Simpsons!
|Do you see Stella balancing on the statue?|
This is outside Isotopes Stadium.
|Virginia Beach's Fuddruckers closed up a long while ago,|
and we miss it very much. So when we saw that
Albuquerque had a Fuddruckers near our hotel,
that had to be dinner. Yum!
|Our library for New Mexico was the Zimmerman Library|
on the University of New Mexico campus, which is beautiful!
|The other side of Zimmerman Library.|
|I got into a weird habit of taking pictures behind rest areas because they're so|
nice looking in other states. This one is, I think, New Mexico.
|Our Colorado library was the Virginia Village Branch in Denver|
(and it was just starting to rain, so we had to do this quickly!)
|This neat display is just inside the door|
to the Virginia Village library.
|Another restaurant recommendation:|
If you're ever in Denver, go to the Bull & Bush.
Excellent beer, excellent whiskey selection,
and great food, especially the Colorado fries
(with cheese and green chile!)
