Downtown Santa Fe, New Mexico


One of our favorite day trips from our current location in Southern Colorado, is historic downtown Santa Fe, New Mexico. While we haven't yet partaken of the Opera, we have enjoyed ogling the classic southwestern adobe architecture. 


     


Browsing upscale boutiques, then crossing the street to explore quirky shops filled with folkart and local handcrafts.



Loretto Chapel needs its own post, there are just too many pictures and details to include here.




     


A stroll past the park reveals a stone turtle and a checkerboard, ready to play.


The Deck at 221 looked interesting, with sculpted horses, rearing with pride. Maybe next trip we'll sit up there under the umbrellas, sipping iced tea or espresso and watching the action below.
