So on May 1st it snows! Brrr, but that gave me time to work on trying to repair the website and I spent a few hours with technical support to have the case referred to a senior technician. On the afternoon of May 3rd I received an email telling me that the problem had been resolved. Yay!
The winds howled and the rain/snow mix fell over the weekend but Monday was nice enough for me to go to Kirkland Air Force Base and do a little shopping. On the way out of the Air Base I saw this museum.
On Tuesday I was able to get out and about and explore part of the Turquois Trail. I made it up to Sandia Peak and enjoyed a hike and shopping. I know, the last thing I need is another t-shirt but check this out.
The first stop on my trek today was the Tijeras Pueblo. In 1971 to 1976 this was an archaeological site for the University of New Mexico. Not much remains but the hike around the compound and the conversation with the Forest Rangers was interesting.
Then onward on the Turquois Trail. I took a detour from the main trail to drive to the Sandia Crest. A winding twisting road that has fantastic views. I’m not the best with heights anymore and some of the views were a little intimidating but I made it and enjoyed a hike also.
And YES this is snow beside the road.
Much like the Aluminum Castle in Florida there is a ‘Tinker Town Museum’ here in Sandia.
And finally I turned around to take this photo of a wall mural on wood, leaning against a stone wall.
An interesting sign at an empty building in Tijeras.
These are just some of the sights I’ve experienced on this Route 66 trip. I hope you are enjoying the photos and blog. Please comment.
