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)
I also stopped at Abo Ruins, Salinas Pueblo Missions National Monument (http://www.nps.gov/sapu/historyculture/abo.htm)
