You can always tell it’s getting to be Fall in New Mexico because that’s when the chile harvests come in. As soon as the harvests come in, various places around town start roasting green chiles and Albuquerque smells amazing for a while. Most of the year, just like “Weird” Al said, Albuquerque smells like root beer, but during the Fall we get the smell of roasting chiles.
I love Fall in Albuquerque. It’s smells great.
