Got home late last night from NM.
Had a great time! Fit in the Tent Rocks hike, Petroglyphs National Monument hikes two days, several trips between Albuquerque and Santa Fe, Meowwolf (what a trip!) https://meowwolf.com/, a lot of art, and bonus I got to meet SuzieQ at her new job in Madrid.
It was a cheap trip: $14 a day car rental, two hotel rooms my parents insisted on paying for, free nights crashing at cousins while son crashed at friends, tons of good food. My son and I are already thinking about planning our next trip out and we haven't even unpacked from this one yet. I splurged a bit and bought a native american made howlite necklace at Old Town Albuquerque, some woodturning pieces at an artist co-op, and necklace/earrings from SuzieQ.
