The last stop of our trip was Albuquerque, where Mom had gone to college. We had a fantastic time there, visiting with one of my coworkers, eating a ton of New Mexican food, riding the Tramway, and exploring the city.
We stayed at the Spy House bed and breakfast. The hosts were friendly, the place was adorable, and the breakfasts were delicious – eggs right from the chickens in the back yard.
On the last day of our trip, we drove up to Santa Fe and walked around the square.
Then we powered on up to Taos, where we just made it in time to explore the pueblo before it closed for the day. Taos Pueblo was probably the coolest thing we saw on our trip – a 1000-year-old pueblo that’s still inhabited today.
After that, there was nothing for it but to suck it up and drive the two-day boring trip home. But it was worth it! I loved the Southwest. In fact, I liked Albuquerque so much, I’ve since moved there.
