mundane aesthetic : ABQ -> PHX travelogue

Last month I did a quick little trip to Albuquerque, New Mexico. The allure of the Southwest just continues to call me back! I went to Santa Fe last year, but didn’t get a chance to really see much of Albuquerque, so I was looking forward to exploring it in more detail. Here are a few snaps I took wandering through Albuquerque.

After a few days in Albuquerque, I went on a little road trip down to Phoenix. I seem to go to Phoenix and Scottsdale quite frequently for one reason or another, but it’s always a pleasure to return. On the way to Phoenix, I made little pit stop in the lovely little town of Holbrook, to Stewarts Petrified Wood Shop. It’s one of those kooky kitschy roadside attractions that I couldn’t pass up. They had these ostriches you could feed in a pen next door. They were so cute!… at first… and then quickly became a bit scary as their pecking became very aggressive and I was worried they’d literally bite my hand off! lol!

Anyway, I pulled off at a few more of the many tourist stops along the way. Gotta love an American road trip right?

Finally a trip to Phoenix wouldn’t be complete without a stop at Cosanti. I highly recommend going down to Arcosanti, but if you just need a quick fix, Cosanti is conveniently located in the Phoenix area and equally as awesome.

Have you been on any good road trips lately? Let’s continue the conversation over on facebook, and make sure you’re following me on Instagram and Instagram stories for more of my travel shenanigans.
