My favorite thing to do in the spring and fall is head over to the Albuquerque zoo. Considering we live in a desert the zoo does a great job of keeping the habitats for the animals as close to their natural habit as possible. And I really love polar bears :)
One a year we drive 2 hours north to Taos, NM. The gorge is amazing. The Rio Grande river looks so small.
The gorge in Taos.
The Sandia Mountains are amazing! Sandia means Watermelon. The mountains turn pink during the sunsets :)
When I think of New Mexico I think hammock weather April-Nov. Yes I wear Sponge Bob PJ pants.
Fishing at Cochiti Lake and watching the sun come up....
After fishing for 9 hours they caught a fish. Yes I said they... :) (Sandia Lake)
New Mexico Scorpions Hockey!!!! They are not the best team but the beer is cheap :)
Where else will you be driving and have to dodge balloons???

Driving in New Mexico can be 1 of 2 things. Amazing or boring. This was amazing!

New Mexico is full of museums. This happens to be one of my favs.

SO COOL!! I am afraid of snakes but I love the rattlesnake museum. Mr and I usually go a few times a year. Bob the owner is the coolest guy EVER!!!
Snowfall on the Sandias
The colors are just breath taking sometimes. Look at that sky!
I was so excited to get a picture of a New Mexico sunset I didn't bother to notice my light fixture was in the reflection of the window. LOL! My Grandmother sent me a text asking me what the fire ball was.
The desert has its own beauty
I miss rain :(
October is balloon fiesta time in Albuquerque.
New Mexico fall colors. (Sandias)
Leaving Michigan was very hard for me but as you can tell by my photos... New Mexico has its own beauty.
