Breaking Bad Fan Memorial

New location is 2047 South Plaza St. NW. They have a great collection of props, and the owner is super nice!

Breaking Bad Fan Memorial

The original is being turned into a gated community, but can be found online if you're savvy enough. The replica is at least worth a visit though -- especially since its right next to the blue meth (candy) lady.

Indoor descanso and memorial.

Breaking Bad Fan Memorial

The Breaking Bad Meth Lab descanso was destroyed in December 2013. A replacement cross was built at the time by my sister Michelle Browning, but never erected -- until recently. Ed Candelaria and Marq Smith at the Breaking Bad Store ABQ took an interest and now have the replacement cross and the various candles, flowers, and shirt that people brought to pay respects to Walter White in 2013.

Breaking Bad Meth Lab, Descanso

Still gone, July 2014, nice location though. There might some plastic flower remnants on the ground behind a newly erected fence.

Breaking Bad Meth Lab Descanso

The descanso is definitely gone. The whole filming site appears to be getting demolished, and the fence which supported the descanso is torn down.
