We took a day trip from Albuquerque to Santa Fe on Saturday. We rode the Rail Runner which is the 'new' commuter/tourist train that goes from Santa Fe to Albuquerque. It cost $7 for a round trip ticket which is a bargain for the 55 mile one-way ride.
The morning was cool and brisk but other than that it was a nice day. We waited with about 40 other people to board at a stop near the Rio Grande not far from downtown.
We wandered down the street past historic La Fonda Hotel and then to St. Francis of Assisi Church. Construction was started on it in 1851 by Jean Baptiste Lamy (later Bishop Lamy).
Our trip back to Albuquerque took about 90 minutes and we arrived about 6:00 PM.
Thanks for stopping by the Roadrunner Chronicles today. Until next time...
