100_5657We rolled into Albuquerque over a week ago.  The city is located in the Rio Grande River valley.  Yes, the same Rio Grande River of the Texas/Mexico border.  The backdrop for this city in the valley is the Sandia Mountains.  It is a beautiful setting.  We need to stay in one place for awhile and this seems like a good place to do so.  Gary got our taxes done and took the car in for an oil change and tire rotation and balancing.  I began a very needed cleaning of the interior of the motor home.

100_5659We went to the old town area of Albuquerque, the area from the founding of the city in the 1700s.   I went to Mass at the San Felipe de Neri Church, the oldest church in Albuquerque and which has continuously served the community since 1706.  The area is filled with adobe-style buildings housing galleries, shops and restaurants.  We also toured Central Avenue which back in the day was where Route 66 traversed the city.
