Trip to Albuquerque

Last week, Pat and I loaded up the truck with his bike and my weaving and we made a road trip to Albuquerque, NM.   Pat has a long time blog friend, Patrick O’Grady, who writes an interesting, entertaining, and extremely thought provoking blog called Mad Dog Media.  He also writes bicycle reviews and columns, and draws cartoons, for several bicycle magazines.  Long story short, Pat and Patrick (yes, it did get confusing at times) planned a bike ride along the Rio Grande River bike path called Paseo del Bosque.   The weather almost cancelled their ride, but the sun finally shined upon them and they had a great ride.  They rode thirty two miles of dedicated muti-use path, which also happens to pass by the Biopark.  I’m taking my bike next time we go.IMG_3198The next day we took a trip to the Albuquerque Biopark which has an aquarium, botanical gardens and zoo.  I LOVE aquariums and even though this one is small, it had some very nice tank displays, and I especially liked the one where you walk through a tunnel in the large salt water tank.IMG_3201I didn’t get any pictures of the Botanical Gardens, but Pat took several of the zoo.  Here’s one  special picture for my niece, Liz.IMG_3218IMG_3222

After our day at the Biopark, we had dinner with Patrick and his brighter half, Shannon. We went to El Bruno’s Mexican restaurant and had a great dinner with pleasant company.  We got so busy eating and talking we forgot about taking a picture.  Maybe next time.

Duffy did a sleep over at a bed and biscuit kennel while we were away.  He always comes home a little clingy.IMG_2439And to finish up this post, Happy Mothers Day to my mom, my sisters and all mothers everywhere.  IMG_2901See ya,

  1. Looks like a nice trip! I need to take the boys on a zoo trip-so much fun no matter how old you are!
    And aquarium tunnels are incredible!
