Leaving from Dulles airport...
Morning in Old Town Albuquerque! The sun comes up behind the Sandia mountains.
In the morning, lots of people like to go ballooning. Anuenue spots a bunch
of balloons over east Albuquerque.
She takes a short trip into Old Town to get breakfast. It is very cold outside!
Can you find Anuenue near the statue of Don Francisco Cuervo y Valdez, the founder of Albuquerque.
It is Sunday morning, and lots of people are headed to services at the San Felipe de Neri Catholic Church, built in 1793.
Most of the shops are closed in the early morning, including this cute adobe shop with chile peppers. But the cafe next door was open for pudding!
After it warms up in the afternoon, Anuenue went on a hike in the foothills of the Sandias. The city of Albuquerque is visible below, and there are lots of boulders strewn about.
She saw lots of cacti - this one still had blooms.
This cactus had long sharp spines.
Anuenue bravely climbed into this churro cactus.
Finally in the evening, there was a nice sunset.
