RV Trip USA – New Mexico and Billy the Kid

Having cooled down after our Grand Canyon effort we were back in our mobile home and making our way to Albuquerque, New Mexico. Elissa’s cousin Bridgee (who will feature later in our trip) studied at the University of New Mexico for a number of years and so we decided to check out this city based on her recommendations. Its a fun town – we visited the Old Town, wandered through the City Centre and had a great night out meeting a couple of US soldiers. Albuquerque is located at the base the Sandia Peak which is also well worth a visit as it lays claim to being the world’s longest tramway and has some incredible views.

New Mexico is where Billy The Kid lived and was killed by Pat Garrett, so we paid homeage to him by visiting his gravesite and museum. The Museum in the town of Fort Sumner, south east of Albuquerque is an incredibly interesting museum and gives you a really good insight into the real life of cowboys.
