if you havent seen enough of Albuquerque you can see around town by watching the tv series Breaking Bad(AMC),In Plain Sight(USA),Easy Money(CW Network) they are all filmed in ABQ and show various points of the city.

I loved your pics! A friend has a drywall business in Albuquerque and has sent some awesome winter pics. I didn't realize how far above sea level it is.
I could talk about Toledo...there's a reason no one posts from there though ...and you don't want pics trust me!

The best thing about Toledo are the roads leading out of Toledo. No joke. I have family in the area; and my sister goes to school there. That city is declining at an alarming rate. The western edges are allright, but dare head east of UT, yikes!

EDIT: Sorry, I shouldn't pick on Toledo. I should say something nice about Toledo. Toledo is not as boring as Terre Haute. Toledo is close to the lake. Toledo has a great downtown baseball stadium for the Mud Hens. Toledo is safer than Detroit.

ABQ is so beautiful...I had actually considered moving there for awhile. I love those pictures. I'm seriously tempted to set one as my desktop!

Anyway, how do you guys like it there? Is the crime / school district as bad as everyone says?

Also, don't feel discouraged that a ton of people aren't posting...I think it must just be a slow day. People do know how to show the love.

I made a similar post awhile back and it was fairly successful.

Say something nice about a commonly ignored city.
