Albuquerque, New Mexico

I love it here. I can’t get enough of the beautiful red sand and mesas. The sky is blue and it’s a nice 70 degrees with a nice cool breeze.

I’ve pulled over to eat, at a very exotic location; Taco Bell. No, it’s not great, but it’s fine and three tacos fit nicely into the number of calories I allow myself for lunch. It works for me.

I found a shady spot in the adjoining Sam’s Club parking lot and ate. I’m sitting next to a beautiful pine of some kind, at least I think it’s a type of pine?

Fahrni road trip tip. When you stop make it multipurpose. The stops are usually about going pee, gassing up, or eating. When convenient, do all three. I’ll do that this stop, even though I have 3/4 of a tank I’ll still top it off just because. It’s just a thing I do.

Here’s a picture of the tree. Maybe someone can tell me what it is.
