Albuquerque is geographically divided into four quadrants that are officially part of any street address: NE (northeast), NW (northwest), SE (southeast), and SW (southwest). Central Ave. delineates north and south, the BNSF Railway tracks divide east and west. This walk hits all four quadrants, following a route as creative as the area it explores. Inspiration for this walk comes largely from expert wanderer David Ryan, author of the book and blog The Gentle Art of Wandering, who said, “When I walk in cities I hope to find a combination of interesting streets, alleys, paths, stairs, and whatever else is available along the way to make the walk special.”
