New Mexico – SE of Albuquerque (Routes 337, 55, & US 60) – Punta de Agua, Abo Ruins, etc.

I went looking for old New Mexico – the traditional building style and landscape.

I headed east from Albuquerque on US Highway 40 and turned south at state Route 337.   I joined state Route 55 south and then drove southwest on US Route 60.

This excursion gave me more than I had asked for.

Here are some of the highlights –
