Albuquerque Photos, New Mexico Photos & My Southwestern Adventures

There is a culture in Albuquerque that is very much rooted in the history of its people. This mural in East Downtown, Albuquerque shows those influences in a colorful and playful way.
Exploring Beyond Albuquerque
Living in Albuquerque gives one access to an amazing diversity of local attractions in the states of New Mexico and Arizona. Simply mix a bit of wanderlust with a full tank of gas, and you will find a wealth of attractions and sites that will amaze the eye. The photo below shows a scene from the Goldfield Ghost Town, a personal favorite near Phoenix, Arizona.
For some of the best winter sports in the United States along with breathtakingly beautiful mountain settings, there is always Taos, New Mexico, a picturesque and historic New Mexican small town. The photo below shows a classic Adobe style art gallery in Taos.
