I pull into Santa Fe and the dog is antsy. He’s been in the truck while I was hiking Bandelier, he needs out. So I park in the first free parking area I find and start following the signs of downtown Santa Fe to the ‘historic plaza.’
There is a pretty church:
There is a capitol building:
And another church:
This church has some great sculptures near it:
I meander around the historic section for a while, and am impressed by the high volume of art in the area.
Heck, even the building entrances are more artistic here:
And there were artists, selling their goods on the plaza:
So we meandered around for around two hours before going to find a coffee shop where I could sit for a while, edit photos, and just be off my feet.
Then it was a night spent in the ‘big box’ section of town where are all huge stores are. Woke up, went for another small walk downtown, then headed out. It was time to meet up with my friends in Albuquerque again.
