Subject: Santa Fe, Albuquerque, Taos and Las Vegas
Dear Sandie, Have a really good time in Northern New Mexico; we found it to be one of the most spectacular, unique and evocative places that we have visited. Do not hesitate to visit the galleries in Santa Fe and Taos, where there is a lively art scene and the gallery owners and operators are much friendlier and willing to discuss the artisits and their work than in many places in my experience. The Museum of Folk Art in Santa Fe is very cool, and there is good food all over the place. We drove from Santa Fe to Taos, taking in Chimayo on the way. The Santuario de Chimaya with its well of holy dirt is a place I would like to visit again. Taos Puebl0 should not be missed, and the artists that live there and sell their works are amazing. We also drove through the canyon of spectacular red rocks (anyone know the name?) and visited the incredible cliff dwellings near Los Alamos. This is also a well known site whose name escapes me as I am a bit flu-ish and not thinking clearly. We put over 500 miles on a rental car just driving around for a couple of days. The scenery was breath taking. Have fun Debbie in Pgh
