Ahh, Santa Fe!

There is just something about Santa Fe--.  Is it the landscape with the wonderful evening sunsets or the marvelous food or culture or maybe, it's just the people--native Americans who hold a special place in the heart of Santa Fe?

We make our list of things to do while here:

  • walk around the plaza--the heart of the ancient town:  Santa Fe, New Mexico’s capital, sits in the Sangre de Cristo foothills. It’s renowned for its Pueblo-style architecture and as a creative arts hotbed. Founded as a Spanish colony in 1610, it has at its heart the traditional Plaza. The surrounding historic district’s crooked streets wind past adobe landmarks including the Palace of the Governors, now home to the New Mexico History Museum.  Elevation:  7, 198'  It's hard to believe that this desert town sits at this elevation--be sure to drink plenty of water!! 

  • Visit Museum of International Folk Art--always a special exhibit.  Last time I viewed "RED--the story of Cochineal".  This time there is an exhibit of "Tramp Art" and "Quilts of Southwest China"  

  • A Walk along Canyon Road to pop in and out of the art galleries--Always exciting art to view and enjoy.
  • A visit to the Museum of Indian Arts And Culture, a stroll along the Governor's Palace to view and purchase Indian Arts and Crafts.
  • Of course, it wouldn't be Santa Fe, if you didn't stop into view Georgia O'Keeffe's Museum of work.  

Tomorrow is another day in Santa Fe--how will I Stand it?!
