(Ken) May 8 – May 11, 2013. After crossing the boarder into New Mexico and travelling west on the interstate, our destination was Albuquerque. We had seen the city on a number television shows (Breaking Bad – In Plain Sight) and documentaries and thought the area could possibly be our new Mayberry.
Like many up and coming metropolis’ the city is growing fast. With fast growth comes people and traffic. As you can see in the pictures, the area is beautiful and clean. The surrounding area is a mixture of vast plains and mountain peaks. The scenery is breathtaking!
However, living in areas around Washington D.C., London, Cleveland and Tampa while they were expanding; I loathe traffic! I should not have to schedule around rush hour when I can go get a gallon of milk. Living on military bases made it easier then, but I that is no longer an option.
Though, Albuquerque is a beautiful place; I think we will be by-passing Albuquerque, New Mexico as a final destination. It does have its appeal, it just isn’t the Mayberry we are looking for!
