I have an ever growing bucket list of things to see and do in New Mexico. It’s coming up on one year since we moved back to the Land of Enchantment and we haven’t been disappointed one bit. My home state is full of beauty whether it be the colorful landscapes or vivacious sunsets. We are diverse in culture and within those cultures have some of the most artistic souls. Every corner of the state has something to offer. Even in my own backyard I am in in awe of the nature all around us. A pair of roadrunners visit each day as they go back and forth hunting and making their nest. We also see quail, hawks, black crows and even a coyote that have roamed through the yard. The coyote was a bit close for comfort but I was in awe nonetheless. Last weekend we went to the Albuquerque Botanical Gardens and Aquarium. It was a first for Joe and I, it opened in 1996 when we were in our third year of Kansas life. Now that I’ve experienced it, I can say that it doesn’t disappoint, in fact it surpassed my expectations. The ABQ Bio park is a magnificent place and I can’t wait to check out the rest of the park which includes the ABQ Zoo. I hope to go back to the gardens every season as the colors change and new flowers begin to bloom. Take a walk with us as we explore the trails of the ABQ Botanical Gardens. This is the Spring edition!
