Day 7 on the road, Santa Rosa Nm to Albuquerque via Santa Fe (290 km / 180 miles)

We started the day early with driving to Santa Fe, the state capital, and spent the morning walking around the downtown area. In addition to the normal shopping and tourist crowds there was the build up to 4th of July with stalls, stands and stages being built and adding to an already busy town center. Santa Fe is a great town to spend a few hours walking around and just soaking up the history and atmosphere.

Next stop is Albuquerque, and we hit town for lunch around 2 pm, after lunch we drove to towards Tijeras, where the road plays America the beautiful on rumble-strips if you manage to stay right on the road and hold exactly 45 mph. You can read more about it here, and here is our recording of it.

After the musical experience we drove downtown to have a look at the local sights, and looked at the historical center,  San Felipe, Patio Market and the Bio park and we finished the day at the Homewood Suites at Journal Center.
