Images from the 2010 New Mexico State Fair

My son Eric and I went to the New Mexico State Fair this past weekend. I usually take more photos than I took on Saturday, but I did manage to take a few photos.

I always enjoy looking down Main Street towards the midway.

We also enjoyed looking at the old cars from the Tin Lizzies Car Club.

I couldn’t resist taking a photo of a Morning Glory growing near the Agriculture Building.
