New Mexico – Albuquerque

I traveled to Albuquerque on my way across country.  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albuquerque,_New_Mexico)

I really enjoy this city.  Lots of nice people.  Easy going environment.

I have been told that it rarely rains in Albuquerque.  However, it did the day I went out to take pictures.  (Fortunately, the rain stopped long enough for me to take some pictures.)

I visited the Old Town area.

There is a historic church in the Old Town area, called San Felipe De Neri.  It was built in 1793.  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Felipe_de_Neri_Church)

I also headed over to the Rio Grande Valley State Park – to see the Rio Grande River.  The park and the river are located in the middle of the city.  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rio_Grande_Valley_State_Park)

I stopped by the man-made duck pond in the park.

The state park was wonderful!  Filled with natural beauty.

The rainy day added a lovely haze to the pictures …
