Navajo rugs on the ceiling.
After breakfast Eric took us down to old town, the typical Mexican city plaza, and we looked around at the historical houses, church, wonderful sculptures and fun shops. We enjoyed Eric taking his time to show us around. He was a super nice guy.

Had a quick nap in the afternoon so we could get to my surprise for John. We celebrated our anniversary of meeting going up in the Sandia Tram, 2.7 miles up, for a dinner at High Finance Restaurant. We were at 10,378 feet with a panoramic view of the Rio Grande Valley which affords an 11,000 square-mile view. Windy, cold and there was some snow on the ground. Watched the sunset at dinner. We could really feel the altitude.
Looking down at the parking lot
Chilly at the top, still had snow on the ground
Surprise anniversary of meeting for John
Gosh, where have 43 years gone?
After church we visited the Petroglyph National Monument and found it to be very interesting. They had two easy hikes that we were able to do to view the petroglyphs and that was fun. There were signs along the trails explaining the history.
Wonder what this one says?
Next blog will be Taos, Santa Fe and Tucson.
