Biggest let down of the day, was the gates being closed to the petroglyph monument in Albuquerque. I didn’t really need to go to the visitor center but I was a little irked that the gates to the whole area were locked, when this closed at 5pm. Unless I find something else on the way, I’ll be without petroglyphs for this trip, which means I’ll have to place that on a new itinerary and come back again to visit. Not that I don’t want to come back, but I really did want to see the art this time around.
Made it here to the motel at 8:15pm, nice and early due to the earlier lack of open monument in Albuquerque. The upside of course, is that I get to chill and have the chance to be more refreshed in the morning.
