Carrabba's Italian Grill
4921 Jefferson Street N.E.
Albuquerque, New Mexico 87109
Tel:   505-884-6040
Fax:   505-884-6242
URL:   http://www.carrabbas.com

I think I started a revolution here when one of my associates took me to this establishment with some of her friends. Although they have an excellent "jug" house wine, I prefer to order wine with a vintage that is something other than yesterday's date. That's exactly what I did, and we all shared an excellent Chianti with a meal that was first class! From what I understand, my fellow dinner guests now only order wine with a date on the bottle.


Sandia Crest

During my visit to New Mexico in the Fall of 2003, I witnessed their first snow fall of the season. My friend took me to the top of Sandia Crest (elevation 10,678 feet). You could see for hundreds of miles in any direction, and despite the fact that it was 76 degrees (F) at the base, it was a frigid 22 degrees (F) at the summit. Simply a breathtaking panoramic view! There are numerous recreational activities here for all seasons, including skiing, biking, hiking and fine dining.


Los Alamos

Although there are numerous places to visit in Los Alamos, I did not have enough time to visit most of them. One place I did stop at was the Bandelier National Monument:

Bandelier National Monument
HCR 1 Box 1 Suite 15
Los Alamos, New Mexico 87544
Tel:   505-672-0343
URL:   http://www.desertusa.com/ban/

32,000 acres of land which contain Anasazi cliff house and ancestral Pueblo dwellings, mesas and sheer-walled canyons. You can actually climb into some of the cliff dwellings.


Madrid

Old Coal Mine Museum
Turquoise Trail Highway 14
Madrid, New Mexico
(halfway between Albuquerque and Santa Fe)
URL:   http://www.turquoisetrail.org/madrid.htm

An old mining town where you can visit many portions of the mining facility, as well as enter the mine itself. An interesting look into the life of a coal miner.


The town
The small town of Madrid hosts numerous local artisans who market some excellent crafts. One of the quaint studios I visited was the Conley Studio Pottery (owned by Greg and Lisa Conley, Tel: 505-438-0782). It was here that I found some wonderful lead glass candle holders and a beautifully crafted wooden box (I collect boxes from all over the world). I think the box I purchased was crafted by Valerie Caldwell. Excellent work! And I think it was Greg who was attired as a real-live cowboy packing his Colt 45!


Santa Fe

La Posada de Santa Fe Resort and Spa
330 East Palace Avenue
Santa Fe, New Mexico 87501
Tel:   505-986-0000
Toll Free:   800-727-5276
Fax:   505-982-6850
URL:   http://laposada.rockresorts.com/

I was only here for one night, but the bungalows were spacious and the conference facilities were nice. I would have liked to stay longer so I could use the spa facilities for a little relaxation.


Tomasita's Santa Fe Station
500 South Guadalupe
Santa Fe, New Mexico 87501
Tel:   505-983-5721

A converted train station left over from the wild, wild west, this restaurant features dishes indicative of northern New Mexico. When they tell you "hot" they really mean "hot"! The food was phenomenal, and some of my associates truly enjoyed the liter-sized margaritas.
