Santa Fe, New Mexico

The seat of power, the center of culture, the hub of tourism…that is Santa Fe.  One afternoon is nowhere close to the amount of time needed to even scratch the surface of the sights, sounds, smells, and scenery of this astoundingly beautiful place.  There was barely enough time to hit the “major” tourists spots—Palace of the Governors, La Fonda Hotel, the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Francis of Assisi (shown here), Canyon Road, and the Capital Building (“the Roundhouse”).  The list goes on…too many places, too little time. 

If one starts their journey on the Turquoise Trail outside of Albuquerque, that trip invariably takes them to Santa Fe.  The feeling of arriving at such an important hub of activity must rival that the early explorers and settlers had when making their own journey into Santa Fe.  The place is magical.  Our photo journey was winding down but not our appreciation for such a beautiful day and such a great opportunity to capture much of what gives New Mexico its motto of being the Land of Enchantment.
