Stopping in Santa Fe

“I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way - things I had no words for.”Georgia O'Keefe

Posing by a Georgia O’Keefe (above) and at the San Miguel Mission, with a view of the altar (below).  Built about 350 years ago, the mission is the oldest church in the U.S., dating to the early 1600s.


A stop at the Georgia O’Keefe museum would make a trip to Santa Fe, NM, worthwhile in its own right, but of course there’s so much more to do and see there, including 300-year-old Spanish churches, adobe homes, the terrific Santa Fe marketplace ...

 and a surprising “off-the-beaten-path” find -- Pecos National Park.  Located 26 miles from Santa Fe, Pecos is on the eastern entrance of the Glorieta Pass where for centuries people used the pass as a natural route between the Rio Grande Valley and the plains.  The ruins of ancient Native American villages and walls, and remains of a massive Spanish church coupled with the natural beauty of the landscape provides for breathtaking memories.
