Another Short Visit to Alamosa

I made another brief trip to Alamosa last week. This is the first chance I’ve had to writ anything about it! I was doing two days of training for Adams State College, where they’re implementing a campus-wide content management solution built on Bricolage. But the real reason I’m writing is because of the neat photos I took. Most of them I took from the plane on the way in to Alamosa. But the photo of the lobby of the Clarion hotel I stayed in is, um, interesting as well. Enjoy!

A Quick Trip to Alamosa

Milagro’s Coffeehouse

Last week, I went on a brief business trip for Kineticode to Alamosa, Colorado. The client was Adams State College, which is planning to use Bricolage to manage all of its content. Alamosa is a sleepy little town of 8,000 people 22 miles north of the border with New Mexico, situated in the largest valley in the world, I’m told. You can get any kind of food you want there, as long as it’s Mexican food, and the high altitude (ca. 2300 m) makes the tequila work wonders on one’s equilibrium.

Mostly I just worked with our clients, but I did manage to take a couple of photos, but I did manage to get a couple of photographs with my Nokia 6600. The “cool” coffeehouse in Alamosa is Milagro’s Coffeehouse, but to judge by their sign, I wasn’t sure I wanted what they were selling.

The flight home

Alamosa has a very small airport. When I flew in on the little prop plane from Great Lakes Airlines, I was one of two passengers. On the way out (I flew through Denver), there were five of us. I thought the engine looked cool out my window, so I turned on my phone (bad David!) and snapped another shot.

Looks like I might be returning to Alamosa soon to do some training. Maybe I’ll be able to get some more pictures; the sunsets are quite lovely there.
