From Punta de Agua back to Albuquerque - April 18, 2004

South on NM 55 to Mountainair, west on US 60 and then north on NM 47 along the east side of the Rio Grande valley.

Punta de Agua. Not much happening here. Most of the buildings seem to be abandoned. [2048x1536]

That's apparently a NM state highway off to the left. [2048x1536]

Arrival at US 60 in Mountainair. [2048x1536]

Mountainair. [2048x1536]

Heading west on US 60. [2048x1536]



Coming down into the Rio Grande basin. [2048x1536]

Onto NM 47 from here toward Belen. [2048x1536]

NM 47's flatness. [2048x1536]



Going up through the Rio Grand bosque on NM 47. [2048x1536]

Into Albuqerque, I-25 leads to I-40, the sign says. [2048x1536]

Old overhead in Albuquerque. It looks like there once was a US 66 up there for Central Ave. [2048x1536]
