River of Lights ABQ (and a Date Night OOPS)

Image
SN and I have lived in New Mexico many years, but had never visited (or wanted to visit) the River of Lights event that is held during the holidays every year at the botanical garden. At $12 per person, the tickets seemed too expensive, especially as I'd seen the remnants of the exhibits during the day while there during the spring. Yes, I thought the dozen or so scraps that were scattered around represented the entire thing. But guess what?

We decorated our home for Christmas yesterday and woke up in a snowy winter wonderland today.
