Santa Fe, NM

Santa Fe, NM was the next destination on the map. Having never been, but doing some research we were pretty excited to see the history and culture the capital city had to offer.

From the moment we pulled up to the Santa Fe Sage Inn, saw the dried chilis lining all the walkways, and being surrounded by adobe buildings, we were intrigued and excited.

The next morning  we checked out all things Santa Fe. Starting off the day seeing some local pueblos which were wonderfully unique, followed by The Loretto Chapel with the floating stair case-to this day it is still a mystery as to how it was structured since it has no center support as a typical spiral stair case would.

We spent some time poking around the shops around the plaza, and I purchased some authentic jewelry made by Eva, a local Navajo.

Next, the Georgia O’Keeffe museum was on the interest list for the trip, and it certainly did not disappoint. O’Keeffe was such a varied artist. She had the unique ability to paint anything from landscapes to abstracts, all of equal beauty.

I read in a local magazine that Santa Fe is the number 2 place in the country to retire, and I can see why!

One thought on “Santa Fe, NM

  1. Awesome! Just read first few posts and can’t wait to live vicariously thru you guys! Highly recommend buying jewelry where you can to commemorate your journey! It doesn’t take up space but when “real life” starts again you’ll have all these pieces to remind of that moment in time!
