Albuquerque Rio Grande Botanical Garden and Aquarium

I recently made a quick trip through Albuquerque and was privileged enough to stop by the Albuquerque New Mexico Rio Grande Botanical Garden and Aquarium (click here for website).  The Aquarium is on the smaller size but has a number of great tanks.  The shark tank was quite impressive and I enjoyed their native fish displays.  I also enjoyed botanical garden, especially the Rio Grande Heritage Farm with their livestock, large gardens, flowers, and orchard.  The orchard was especially impressive to me.  Anyway here are some pictures of the aquarium and garden, well worth a visit is you live in the area or are passing through.  This is an absolutely wonderful place to learn all kinds of things about plants, animals, fish, and farming.
