Lots to discover in Albuquerque

IF Beverly Beyette became quickly bored with Old Town [“Albuquerque Rising,” Jan. 14], she should have traveled it with a local, because she missed the best parts.

Behind the church is a 3-foot carving in the knotty bark of an old cottonwood tree that has been there since the 1940s and never been vandalized. She missed the spooky little prayer chapel at the end of one of the narrow alleys. Its heavy wooden doors have no locks or latches and, again, no one has ever bothered it.

You missed the only naked ghost I’ve ever heard of that haunts the old brothel. Did you know Albuquerque is the western-most site of any Civil War battle?
