Travel Blogs from Albuquerque
So I fiiinally arrived in Albuquerque at 2am...yaaaay! There I was met by Jess and Jackson, my travel buddies for the New Mexico/Arizona/Utah/Colorado road trip. We went straight to Jacksons flat to get things ready for the morning and catch a few hours sleep. First thing in the morning we set off for Chaco Culture National Historical Park which was stunning!
