Our first stop on our return to Colorado was Pueblo. One day we walked a trail in nearby Lake Pueblo State Park. We loved the trunks on these old juniper trees.

Whittington and Shooting
The center has numerous ranges. We prefer shooting in one of multi-purpose bays. These are small canyons or breaks in the hills. Ours had two target stands and we could determine how close or far away from the target we wanted to be.

Old Town Albuquerque
Many old cities across the country have an old town where the first settlers congregated and sold or traded goods. Few in the west are as old as Albuquerque’s old town. If you look closely at this sewer cover in one of the downtown streets, you see the city celebrated it’s tricentennial in 2006. Colorado, where we were born, celebrated it’s 130 birthday that year.
Old town has numerous old and beautiful adobe buildings.
This is the Church of SanFelipe de Neri, the oldest church in Albuquerque. It has continuously served the community without interruptions since 1706.
The bandstand most likely is the center of many community events and weddings.
The covered walkways around the square provide protection from the sun and from rain.
We saw this colorful display of blankets and rugs in one store.
Old Southwestern towns always seem to have walkways that draw us in to see what is available there.
As we left Old Town we saw this sign. I think someone from England labeled this structure.
