The Route 66 theme is alive and well in Albuquerque, particularly in the Nob Hill neighborhood adjacent to the University of New Mexico.
Near the western edge of the city lies a huge reserve in Petroglyph National Monument of pre-historic evidence of communication between the civilizations of indigenous people that are fascinating to observe.
