Day 11, April 6th - Albuquerque to Tucumcari, including Petroglyph National Monumnet, the Pueblo Cultural Center and Santa Fe.

We left about 7:45 AM, following city thoroughfares from the north side to the west side, and coming out exactly where we wanted. We arrived at Petroglyph National Monument just as it opened and drove over to the trails. It was cold, windy and the sand was blowing, so we didn't take as many pictures as we'd thought we would. Here's a sample.

Sandra's shot.
A large lava flow from volcanoes stopped just west of Albuquerque. The black basalt picked up desert varnish, as well, so the early natives (and almost everyone since) stopped and pecked in their images.

Back to the Interstate and guessed the right exit for the Pueblo Cultural Center. We toured the museum and again learned about the different languages and traditions of the various pueblos. The only pictures allowed were in the courtyard, so we took these of some of the murals there.

On to Santa Fe where one must feed the parking meters and we were lucky to find a place for lunch. As it happened, we got a window seat by the courtyard and Bill saw a picture right out the window.
