Albuquerque–New Mexico’s largest city (but not the capital–that’s Santa Fe), is probably best known to most folks due to a certain cartoon rabbit’s wrong turn.
But it’s so much more than that. It’s relatively in the middle of the state, and sits at about 5,000-6,000 feet above sea level. The population of the area is a bit over half a million people.
Bordered by the Sandia Mountains on the eastern side and sloping down westward, the sunrises and sunsets are something to behold. The scenery is lovely–yes, it’s mostly brown, but there’s something beautiful about it.
There’s a lot to do, a lot to see, and so. Much. To. Eat.
So instead of making that left turn at Albuquerque, stop by for a bit.
I’ll be hitting a lot of Albuquerque stuff in the coming days as well as New Mexico as a whole. I hope you enjoy my A-Z Challenge posts!
