All alone in Albuquerque…at an RV park. I mean yeah, the sites are tight, you share a hook-up area with your neighbor-which also means you share a sitting area can you say ak-wardand the noise from I is constant. So why are we staying here?
Or rather, why am I staying here? Weeeell, Tim is away this week at a work conference in Chicago. When he found out about the conference Lonely in albuquerque ago, we knew the plan was to be in New Mexico through April, and Albuquerque seemed to to be the best choice for a place to fly out of. To which I reply that he must fit in perfectly. Which is no surprise, since it is a conference for computer programers. I also might have stretched the truth a bit when I claimed to be all alone. Through the magic of RVillage I set up a group message and we planned a few afternoon happy hours.
Guess we all have more in common than just Rving. Sadly, Julie and Jim are moving on today, but I was able to set up another get together for this weekend after Tim returns so he can meet everybody else. Good times.
But I have checked out some of the nice green space in the city. There a really lovely Lonely in albuquerque bike path that runs alongside the Rio Grande River. Parallel to the paved path is a dirt path closer to the river in the trees. Both are well used and a great sanctuary in a city full of a whole lot of pavement and criss-crossed lanes of highway. By far my favorite activity here in town was BioPark. I spent an entire afternoon wandering around the botanical gardens, followed by about 15 minutes at the aquarium.
The BioPark also has a zoo, but it was an extra fee, and I am not so into zoos that I wanted to pay extra for it. The botanical gardens were much larger than I anticipated, and I happily wandered the lush green paths oohing and awing at the early spring flowers and snapping about a million photos. Some of the areas even looked a bit run down, but truthfully I enjoyed the more natural look and was thrilled just to see green and color after so many months in the desert. Green Grass, Orange poppies, Orange ruffled tulips.
Almost open allium, A path lined with green, Pretty, pretty pansies. Iris, Succulents, Yucca, Butterfly Weed, the cactus greenhouse. Blooming crabapple, The barn, Strawberry patch, The apple barn, Columbine. Japanese Maple, Japanese Pagoda, Viburnum flower. Peony, Magical path, Friendly Koi fish hoping for a handout, Pagoda in the stream. Tim gets back tonight, and provided I can stay awake late enough to pick him up, it will be great to see him again.
When you spend This was my first time staying in the Airstream by myself, and while I enjoyed the space to spread out, it was pretty lonely. To all those solo travelers out there- you amaze me. Looking forward to the next one! Loved the Biopark when we visited in the fall! And how can an aquarium Lonely in albuquerque so disappointing? The aquarium was not only disappointing, it also seemed kind of dirty! Probably the only way they can get people to visit is by including it in the prices for the gardens.
I would love to see the gardens in the fall! You found some really great places to visit and friends to enjoy time with…. I probably would have hibernated in the MH rather than venture out by myself! Used to be a state park so sites are better spaced.
I just heard about that park this week from someone else. Coronado is a nice campground. We have friends who regularlyvstay there. We had a great time at Oliver Lee. We literally spent a day at the Lonely in albuquerque, nerding out and reading about all the astronauts. So many people have mentioned how great it is. Currently work for N.
