New Mexico. The Extras.

We did have some down time between games so we got a chance to take in the sights. 
I already mentioned that the weather was wonderful so we tried to stay outdoors as much as possible.

The first stop we made was at the Petroglyph Monument. 
It was a hike through volcanic rock trails that had etchings/carvings made by Native Americans.
Some were near the path and some were up the hills. Either way, it was a great walk and made for good conversation.

We then went to Old Town Albuquerque for lunch. Its like a town square with art galleries, shops, restaurants, and a beautiful church - San Felipe.
We ate lunch at a really cool place with a southwestern menu. We ate outdoors and embraced the Southwestern feel of the buildings and live performances.

We made it to the zoo too! Hey, that rhymes.
A zoo with mountains in the background, beautiful weather, and cute animals.

There were lots of trees with carved designs in them, like this one, and it made me want to go home and DIY it.

As you can see, we had a great time. It was the perfect time to get away from work and leave our responsibilities behind for some quality time together.
Maybe we will see you again next year Mr. March Madness.


  1. Great pictures. Hope Baylor keeps winning.

  2. What a fun way to spend Spring Break! Those kind of "no agenda" trips are always the best :) I have Spring Break starting next week, so I am definitely looking forward to it!
