Old Town Albuquerque, NM

Eat lunch at The Original Garcia's Kitchen at the edge of Old Town.  Was a great spot for local color and good, reasonably priced New Mexico style food. Jan had carne adovada, which is pork chunks slow cooked in red chiles.....very good, but alittle on the spicy side.  Ted had beef brisket tacos, which he could add his own spice level to.

Historic Old Town has been the heart of Albuquerque since the city was founded here in 1706. Today, historic Old Town Albuquerque is the city's cultural center, with seven museums and more than 100 shops, galleries and restaurants.The settlers organized their new town in the traditional Spanish colonial way, with a central plaza anchored by a church. When the original adobe church collapsed after the long, rainy summer of 1792, they rebuilt, and in 1793 San Felipe de Neri church was completed. Today, this adobe church with walls five feet thick is the oldest in Albuquerque and its white towers mark Old Town from a distance.

Jan, one of many "turistas" in one of the many shops!

The day we were in the Old Town Square there was a Chile tasting competition taking place. Albuquerque is home to the famous red and green chiles!  The question you need to be able to answer you want RED or GREEN??

Pendaries CG & GC, Rociada, NM

Pendaries RV Resort is located in Rociada, NM about 30 mins west of Las Vegas, NM.  Pendaries Village Resort is located across the street.  The RV Park and Village are located at 7500 ft among Ponderosa, Fir and Aspen with views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. The RV Resort is divided into two part is a campground and the 2nd part is RV lots for sale.

The draw for us to this quite area of NM is the golf course. Unfortunately the recent drought has effected the fairways, so the golfing wasn't as good as Ted had hoped.

Posted by PicasaWe have seen lots of deer and antelope in the area.

Raton Pass, NM to Rociada, NM

Welcome ! Luna

When we arrived in Denver our youngest daughter, Kari, had just decided to become a "Foster Mother" for the Colorado Basenji Rescue . Kari picked up Jenny on a Saturday afternoon and by Monday was saying this was the dog for her. Jenny, a Basenji mix, now has a new name "Luna" or as one of Kari's friends calls her "Moon Dog". Luna is a great addition to Kari's household and as you can see has settled right in.

Peregrine Pines CG & USAFA Golf Course

We were camped in a pine forest at the Air Force Academy's Famcamp. The Famcamp is within walking distance of the Academy's  Stadium.

 Ted had two great rounds on the Silver Course of the Eisenhower Golf Complex.  The Colorado PGA was having a tournament on the Blue Course, so Ted could only take a few photos of Blue Course.
