Mmmm every time I think of Arizona, New Mexico or Nevada it's over 100 F. How was the temperature over there? and what's the train line about? You indeed captured some live street level scenes of a probably deserted city, something every forumer should learn from you.

Thanks I enjoyed the trip.

You have a few misconceptions my friend. ABQ's average annual temperature is 56 degrees. The average in July is 78 degrees. The morning I took those photos it was about 18 degrees and by the time I left around 2pm is was about 45 degrees. ABQ sits at the base of a mountain range in a river valley, not in the middle of a scorching hot desert.

The train is called the Rail Runner, and it runs the length of the central corridor of New Mexico and has several stops that run across the city from north to south. It wouldn't have the train if the city was deserted. Like most American cities, especially in the American west, ABQ has plenty of suburban sprawl, but for a city it's size is has a very vibrant downtown core. I didn't have to go out of my way to find people for my photos. In fact, other times I've taken photos in ABQ there have been many more people walking around, but I'm willing to bet that on that particular morning the 10 degree wind chill kept people off the streets.

Hope that helps.

Seems like a very unique city due to its isolation and surroundings. What kind of feel did you get from the city?
To me, it seems very dead, sterile, and not very dense, especially for its size. are there a lot of sprawling strip plazas and suburbs?

Thank you so much. I learn something new every day!!!! Always imagine Albuquerque the way wikipedia put it, and that day is a suburban commute train, I thought it belonged to Amtrak. Keep posting more pics.
