River of Lights

I am on a mission to be as Christmasy as possible.  This weekend Aaron and I went to River of Lights, which is Albuquerque’s version of a large scale light display of happiness hosted by the Botanic Gardens.  Neither of us had been in years, and it looks like Christmas light displays have come a long way since then.  Before, there were a lot of flat light displays.  Technology now allows for 3-D animated light figures! My newly discovered “night scenery” camera mode was in picture taking heaven!

The River of Lights opens at 6:00 p.m. daily and runs through December 30 (closed Dec. 24 and 25).  Tickets can be purchased online or at the door.  Adults are $8.  There was plenty of parking when we went and it was free.  Hot chocolate is available throughout, which is nice because standing outside for over an hour at night makes for some very numb fingers and toes.

  1. So…. this is what I was going to put “MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHA. I can still stalk you even if I don’t have facebook! Who is this? I don’t know!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Have a nice day!”

    Except your blog is stupid and I have to write my name and email. So I can’t be creepy. Sad day.
    Ok, I am going to stop ranting now and get back to my mental breakdown/finals.

    • Except I don’t know very many people who would comment in such fashion on my blog who doesn’t have a facebook anymore…in fact, I only know of one person. So, I would probably, after short consideration, know exactly who wrote it.
