In 2009 I stopped by Albuquerque on my way home from my Army Reunion.  Click on 2009 Albuquerque Photos to view. From that visit, I decided I needed to check out the area more.  Health issues interfered with plans to visit in 2010.  January 2011 I was able to make an extended visit.

I wanted to view Albuquerque in winter.  My life is riding my bicycles.  The climate should be conducive to riding year around.  Another goal of the trip was to check out if I could/would bike more (errands and such) if I lived in town.  Finally, I wanted to look at the area and meet more of the people.

January/February 2012 was another trip to New Mexico.  More pages have been added including Ft. Union and Bosque del Apache NWR.  Of course, more photos from bicycle rides.

Another trip to Albuquerque.  This time I stopped at Fort Larned, KS and Palo Dury Canyon, KS on the way down. More bike rides in Albuquerque.  Taos, the Enchanted Circle, and Great Sand Dunes NP on the way home.

Trip to Albuquerque late January into February 2013.  Played "tourist" at Bent's Old Fort, CO, Very Large Array, NM,  Kashi-Kituwe Tents Rock, NM,  Pecos Historical Park, and Caputin Volcano.

On the 2014 Winter trip I added photos of Carlsbad Caverns and White Sands. Added to "Ghost Towns" with Hillsboro and Kingston.  A trip to Bosque del Apache, Fort Craig, and the El Camino Real International Heritage Center.  A May trip to Santa Fe for a bicycle festival.  Added old buildings coming through Kansas and Colorado.  Had a beer at the Long Branch in Dodge City.  Made a concerted effort to find and photosgrapy more "Ghost Towns".  Those of note are Folsom, Johnson Mesa, Cerrillos, and Waldo.

I am including photos taken to/from to Albuquerque.  No other easy place to post them.  Don't want to create that many web site sections.  Some day I may move them.  For now, photos taken at Palo Duro Canyon State Park, TX, Fort Larned, KS, and Bent's Old Fort are here.
