You remember when highway 14 was actually highway 10. Every time they add a new highway number, I'm just confused.

 

I remember the highway that went up into Rio Rancho, before it became a whole city. Nothing but dirt, all the way down the hill. Now it's covered with shops.

 Coors Blvd went north from Central past the old College of Saint Joseph and continued on to where it connected with Alameda Blvd at Corrales. This was the only bridge over the Rio Grande between Albuquerque and Bernalillo. I believe Paradise Hills north of the college started in about 1959/60. The intersection of highway 10 and US66 going north has changed since I worked for the Forest Service out of the Tijeras ranger station in the summer of 1962.I hardly recognized the area on north 10. I can remember that 10 was not paved north of Golden and the road was only fit for pickups or jeeps. Today,the "back road" to Santa Fe is a very pleasant and easy drive.My boyhood friends and I were all over the Ortiz exploring old mine sites. A new mining company purchased a large area around Madrid and Golden and posted the property so we no longer could hunt in that area. The entire area was a best kept secret for many years.Time has certainly changed everything but the geography. Regard 
Remember snooping through the school at Madrid and climbing all over the old mining equipment? I remember finding the old Christmas parade props. Wonder what ever happened to them.
