Albuquerque Makes Outside Magazine's America's Best Cities List

I've been wondering when Albuquerque was going to crack Outside Magazine's annual list of best places to live. No more wondering! Albuquerque's number six on their list in their most recent issue!

A City With Domes

Although summer is nearly on us, these are from the equally compelling opposite season. I couldn't help but reflect that a city with domes is a civilized place. I love the domes in Albuquerque.

I am supposed to be doing dishes and sifting paperwork right now, but I could not stop myself. I had to take a few minutes to sing the praises of chile peppers. Dang, they're good. I just ate some flank steak coated in sweet and smoky dark red chile powder from the Fruit Basket… Continue
