Cross-Country Drive Part 2 (NM, CO)

...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!

Go 'Topes!

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!)
