Madrid, New Mexico
May 13, 2007.
We are "camped" at Rocky Mountain RV and Marine on east Central Avenue in Albuquerque. We are there moving our belongings from our old Trek motorhome to our new (to us) Winnebago Adventurer Motorhome.
Frank & Sandy invited us to return to their house for a Mother's Day get together.
Once you have been to one of Frank & Sandy's feeds you aren't going to miss a chance to indulge your taste buds. This is Sunday afternoon and we were headed back up the Turquoise Trail toward Madrid and Cerrillos.
Sangre de Cristo Mountains
This is a glimpse of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains with snow still evident in the higher elevations. We are looking north from the Cerrillos hills near Madrid. That should be Santa Fe to the left of the mountains.
Old coal mine tailings in Madrid
On the south side of Madrid we could see mine tailings from the old coal mining days.

BBQ trailer in Madrid
This guy is taking another look at that rubber chicken hanging in the window of this BBQ trailer.
The colors on this place remind me of the French influence in Southern Louisiana.
Madrid's palm reader
Every town like this has to have their resident palm reader -- astrologer.
Madrid yard art
Yard art in these parts is something akin to "Ranch-Gates" in Texas. Yard art takes on a life of its own.
Gold Mine Road in Madrid, New Mexico
This is the landmark that we have been looking for. This unusual fence borders both sides of Gold Mine Road where we turn to go to Frank and Sandy's.
You can read about our visit with friends from Pensacola that have moved to Madrid New Mexico.
Real yard art Madrid style
Yard art is big in Madrid, but this is the best I saw in my brief visit.
Sunset over the Rio Grande Valley from Sandia Mountains
Joyce snapped this sunset picture on our way home. It pretty well sums up our day ---- as good as it gets!
