The bosque (riparian area) along the Rio Grande in its glorious fall colors makes for an excellent afternoon stroll. Yucca in its full, glorious bloom on UNM campus just north of Northrop Hall. A brightly painted and mural covered building downtown Albuquerque.

The KiMo Theatre, a Pueblo Deco building, was erected in 1927 on Central Avenue in downtown Albuquerque. It is home to plays, films, operas, and various other productions year-round. Giraffe, twice as tall as you and kind of intimidating. Want to stick your hand in its mouth? Good news, you can do just that! Well, sorta.
For two dollars you, or one of your munchkins, can get two bundles of giraffe food. In other words, you get a stick with some leaves on it, but don't let that discourage you. This giraffe, named June, will come right up to the fence, encouraged by her caretaker, and accept the treats with its long, reportedly slimy, tongue.
Feeding times vary, you can find them on the ABQ zoo website. Albuquerque’s Downtown Plaza is a gathering place for concerts, summer movies, cultural events and - apparently - a ginormous Adirondack chair This is the place to be on Saturday morning: live music, fresh produce, hand-crafted goods, and children dancing like gypsies! This little food wagon is amazing! Vegan and vegetarian choices: burritos, beans, calabacitas and more. They'll even give you an order # to take into Tractor Brewery while you have drinks and wait on your food. Incredibly accommodating! Big cats at the Rio Grande Zoo are only one of many reasons to visit this amazing place. It is rated one of the top zoos in the country for good reason! The Rio Grande bosque is stunning in late fall as the final leaves make their changes, particularly in the golden hour just before sunset. Tractor. Best kept ABQ secret Plants growing in glass jars attached with plastic ties to a bus stop cage: a pleasant surprise on a stroll through the south end of Nob Hill. Old-school phone booth in Northrop Hall. The phone has been removed, but a stool remains inside and the doors still open & shut to give one a quiet box in which he or she may find a modicum of momentary privacy. Fire station headquarters @ 8th & Silver The fluorescent mineral display in the geology museum at Northrop Hall always delights! New Mexico, hot, dry, with wildlife like roadrunners, coyotes, and.... Polar Bears?
Albuquerque Biopark is home to one of these guys, basking in the way to hot sun. Based on the sunburn that I got coming out of that... I wouldn't want to be covered in fir on that day.
Polar bears dive for fish daily, and feeding times very by season, but there is a good chance you can catch him with a little more action than I did here. Check the Biopark website for more details. This old rail yard featured in Breaking Bad has a farmers market. This place has changed SO much over the years. It has grown into a wonderful place to spend the day and just relax. Bart-style graffiti under Bridge Street near the old Barelas neighborhood of Albuquerque The 25th annual Marigold Parade, also known as Day of the Dead parade, is led by an oversized skeleton through the streets of this largely Hispanic community of southwestern Albuquerque Gorgeous place, particularly in late fall, to visit for various fiestas! I love this spot. Especially when it's around dusk. It is near the CERIA bldg. The Wailers brought their reggae funk to downtown Albuquerque as part of the annual Summer Fest - beautiful night and amazing music! 😎
