New Mexico – Salinas Pueblo Missions National Monument/Quarai

An hour and a half southeast of Albuquerque is the Salinas Pueblo Missions National Monument/Quarai  (http://www.nps.gov/sapu/historyculture/quarai.htm and http://www.nps.gov/nr/travel/american_latino_heritage/Quarai.html)

I had seen a local tour book that mentioned the Village of Quarai, but I really had no idea what to expect.  What I found were memorable, gorgeous ruins, dating back to several centuries ago.

Since it was such a cold,  overcast day, there was hardly anyone around.  I feel blessed to be able to get there pictures without people in the shots…
