Michael and I enjoyed Albuquerque! It is definitely a gorgeous area to visit. Here are some highlights from our week in and around the city.
Unfortunately, the weather wasn't warm enough to take Kumquat out into public, but we hope to get him out in his birdie stroller soon.
The Sandia Sky Tram was one highlight of our week that I was glad we got to experience. At the base of the peak, we ate some lunch at Sandiago's, which was delicious! The portion sizes are large though, so be careful how much you order. The Sky Tram is fairly expensive at $25 per person but well worth the price tag. The view of the mountains was spectacular! See our image page for more information and photos.
On our second night in Albuquerque, we ate at Garduño’s in Hotel Albuquerque in Old Town. We ordered the shrimp fajitas, and they were terrific! Again the portion sizes are enormous, and Michael and I were able to share the fajitas with ease and leftovers. The list of margaritas is impressive, and I enjoyed the jalapeno margarita immensely.
We were able to visit with my grandfather who lives there and ate some breakfast at a Wreck's location. Yum! Talk about a good breakfast!
We stayed at Enchanted Trails RV Park. The RV spots are unpaved but fairly even. It's located near the highway which has its benefits and drawbacks. There was some light noise from the highway, but it made it simple to get into and out of town. We definitely recommend staying here, and the price wasn't bad at all! You will want to have your camera on hand because we saw quite a few beautiful hawks flying around the area. Their facilities were clean, and they have a 50's - 60's vibe going on with the decor which is fun.
On our from Albuquerque, New Mexico to Flagstaff, Arizona we stopped by the Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary, which was fabulous. I loved learning about the wolves, wolf-dogs, dingos, foxes, and other canines they had on the property. It was sad to hear the stories they told about people buying wolves and wolf-dogs without realizing how hard it would be to raise a wild animal in a house. I'm just glad these canines found a place to live out the rest of their lives. You should definitely stop by and support their cause! It's $10 for a basic tour, but if you have $200 you can meet the animals up close and personal. Maybe someday we'll come back to do that!
As you know, if you follow us on social media, we had a couple of tires lose their tread on the highway, but everyone is safe and sound, and we have six brand new tires. Now, all we have to do is get our leveling system fixed. Why are we breaking everything?! The RV life is teaching us patience and laughing instead of cry!
Overall, we had a great time, but we look forward to our next adventure!
