                                                 Live in Albuquerque with its delightful high desert climate and be only a day trip or less from fascinating attractions around the state of New Mexico. White Sands Monument is one of these attractions-one of the many natural wonders of the Land of Enchantment. White Sands is as  devoid of life as Bosque del Apache is populated. At Bosque del Apache, especially in winter, at the break of dawn thousands of birds fill the skies and for a few moments block the sun as they take flight for the day. At twilight they reverse the journey to come back home with a profusion of colors and sounds. But not all the birds leave. Some stay to feed in the surrounding fields so all day, there is life and activity. White Sands Monument, on the other hand is ...

 I wrote in an earlier post http://activerain.com/blogsview/31268/Great-Year-for-Albuquerque, that New Mexico 2006 residential real estate was likely to get a good report and it has.The results are in! No bubble burst because we did not have a bubble. The Albuquerque Metropolitan Board of Realtors year-end review substantiates the gentle ripple theory.  The market in the Greater Albuquerque area shifted and made some corrections, but in the end, the statistics confirm that 2006 has been the second best year on record for the residential real estate market in the Greater Albuquerque area.http://members.abqrealtors.com/hs/stats-2006_year_end-report.pdfhttp://eloise-mynewmeico.blogspot.com/2007/02/no-bubbles-burst-in-new-mexico.html

Albuquerque, because of its relatively, and almost predictabe hgh desert climate, is a great place to call home. From its location in the middle of the state of New Mexico, it is easily accessible to a variety of remarkable sites worth visiting. One such site is Bosque del Apache.Bosque del Apache - bird sanctuary and wild-life refugeFor a spectacular winter experience, visit Bosque del Apache, a 57,191 acre wildlife refuge and bird sanctuary . The bosque (woods) where the Apache used to camp, come alive during the winter months when thousands of birds - sand hill cranes, Arctic geese, and a variety of ducks arrive to spend the winter. The refuge straddles the Rio Grande river where the New Mexico Fishery and Wild Life Preserve make sure there is an abundant supply of food to sustain th...

Chimayó - pilgrims' destinationDepending on whether you walk, ride a bike or drive, Chimayó is only two to six hours away from Albuquerque-less than a daytrip. It is the most famous shrine in all of North America, and is sometimes called the Lourdes of New Mexico. People visit from all over the world especially during the Christian celebration of Lent and Easter. El Santuario de Chimayó, to give the shrine it's full name in the language of New Mexico's earliest colonizers, is nestled in a picturesque, setting just north of Santa Fe off Route 520. In a state where people often describe the way they experience the landscape as spiritual or mystical, Chimayó's setting alone might justify its being being considered sacred space. But as with all shrines, there is a story. Pilgrims visit Chim...

Yesterday, folk were cross-country skiing in Albuquerque.  Last night the cross-country truckers and holiday travelers were not allowed on sections of the the interstate highways because of icy conditions. Today, just half an hour away up on Sandia Peak, skiershave take to the slopes. I am at home this morning at my desk -all scheduled events cancelled since yesterdday morning through tonight. Since we are so close to the Christmas and New Year holidays, essentially all business events to the end of the year are cancelled. The following email is typical of the notes that have been flying out of inboxes during the last twenty-four hours. Hi everyone, Hope you have a very merry Christmas and New Year!!! The snow looks like a picture . . .beautiful. The meeting for tonight is cancelled sur...
