The Welcome to New Mexico sign says it all. On the way to Albuquerque we took a detour thru the Zuni Nation to take in the Petrified Forrest National Park. There were some cool petroglyphs there too. sara at the petrified forrest Petrified tree Petroglyphs Lucky for us we booked some service at Sandia BMW on the day they had a big event on. The local university students let us try out their formula 1 car. The dealership also had Chris Teach Mc Neil there putting on stunt riding shows and he even signed my bike when in doubt throttle out. Teach Mc Neil Taking the scenic route from Albuquerque to Santa Fe over the Jemez Mountains we stopped at the Bandelier National Monument. They had had a huge flash flood last year and there were a lot of sand bags still there. In Santa Fe there were celebrating the 300th Fiesta with music, dancing, a parade, and tons of food vendors. Now we are off to chase the Dragon.
