If you’re in Albuquerque and in need of a perfect milkshake, head to the Route 66 Diner.

This place was cool!

We spent the night before at Cochiti Recreation Area nearby (a great place to camp if you’re in the area).

We arrived at Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks NM just as it was opening.

There was a nice loop trail which we took through the tent rocks and it was a great way to spend the morning.

I will let the pictures speak for themselves….

Can you beat $6 for a campsite? I didn’t think so. Especially when it includes hot showers and a clean, well-lit bathroom.

I was a little bit worried as we headed towards the campground.  Those clouds look pretty daunting to someone who’s going to be curled up in a tent.

Thankfully, it seemed to pass over us and all we got was the beautiful rainbow.

If we’d had more time, I probably would have explored the lake.  As it was, we had just enough time to get everyone fed and the tent set up before it got dark.

I will definitely keep this campground on my list of ones to visit again if we’re in the area.

    Awesome shots and that rainbow was wonderful.
