I’ve been in Albuquerque with my sister, Natalie, and brother-in-law, John, for about 6 days now, so I figured that the best way to share all of the cool things that I have done here would be in pictures….so here we go:
Sunday: Natalie and John are big time football fans, so every Sunday, John moves the TV from their bedroom into the living room…and the day is devoted to football and only football.
Monday: My sister and I shopped…shopped…and shopped some more. She taught me how to coupon at grocery stores and even at Target (a college kid’s dream), and then we visited their outdoor mall and had the chance to grab some more bargains.
Tuesday: We started the day by picking up John’s brother, Paul, at the airport, then we did some sightseeing around town. We ended up at Old Town, an area of shops, restaurants, and some historical sights in Albuquerque.
Later that night, we took a tram up to the top of the Sandia Mountains to see the sunset. They are called the Sandia Mountains because they turn to a watermelon-ish color at sunset, which was beautiful…but I didn’t get any photos of that. These will have to suffice.
It was gorgeous to say the least….
Wednesday: We hiked all the way to the top of the mountain (it was 6 hours of hiking, in case you were wondering), and then took the tram back down. It was pretty cool to see everything again, but in full daylight this time around.
We were really impressed with ourselves for hiking all the way up…so now we obviously feel like the mountain is ours, like we own it.
Thursday: Thanksgiving Day….which I will blog about…later!
