Cochiti Lake, New Mexico
Once again our drive is easy. The scenery changes as we go and we find ourselves in rolling hills giving way to mountain peaks. As we head north we are getting closer to the Rocky Mountains. The weather is still warm, around 25 Celsius or 85 Fahrenheit. We pull into our campsite around 5:00 pm.

... We get changed and head to the rooftop bar at the Parq Central Hotel (thanks to a recommendation in the NY Times), we get there just in time for the best view of the sunset. The hotel and bar are super cool and if I were ever in Albuquerque again this would be a must. I actually took a photo of the menu because the drink I had was so delicious (it was the Summer Smash if you're wondering). Dinner is at Sophia's Place, which appeared on Diners, Drive ...
