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 –

I love the way the Catholic cemeteries were decorated.

At this part of the trip, I visited the Quarai Ruins (which has a separate blog page – see https://eileen14800.wordpress.com/2014/12/18/new-mexico-salinas-pueblo-missions-national-monumentquarai/).  The ruins were spectacular!

In Punta de Agua, I found the San Vicente de Paul Catholic Church.  (http://publishing.cdlib.org/ucpressebooks/view?docId=ft72900812&chunk.id=d0e1869&toc.id=d0e199&brand=ucpress)
